I'm taking a short break from doing commissioned paintings, probably until around the first of March, 2010. Commissions are a bit stressful, just because I want so much to do the best I can do for the client, so from time to time, I need a break so I can "loosen up" a bit. So be looking out for what I hope is some looser work for the next couple of months.
I'm currently working on a giant schnauzer, a black pug (for which I get requests ALL the time! and I'm finally taking the time to paint one), and our own little black-and-tan Cavalier King Charles spaniel, named Sammy. He's an adorable puppy of five months at this time and is a real challenge for our other three older dogs, Higgins, the shih tzu; my precious Harry Barker, the pomeranian; and Casey, the rat terrier mix. So I'll be listing those very soon. And then who knows what I'll do. Maybe a few non-dog paintings???? Sounds fun!
But first: I have a big dog show, the Rose City Classic, here in Portland, OR, which starts, I think, on January 18 - more exact details later - that I'll be attending to show off (and hopefully sell) my paintings, prints, and pendants. I have a LOT of work to do before the show, so at least for now I'll be doing dog paintings only. Wish me luck!
