Can’t wait to paint my own “mushed face” dog! I love pug wrinkles!

Elway Underpainting for Pug Portrait

Only the Acrylic underpainting here (patriotic feel, no?)  Many washes of oil to go!

sneak peek of my latest painting

Landscape detail with 4 washes of oil paint.  Many more to go.

In other news, my Live Oak Trees received some blog love this week…thanks Miss Jazzy Elizabeth!

currently in the works….a very rough sketch of Stone Manor Country Club.

This rather stately B&B resides in Maryland.  Come to think of it, this  just might be my first ink from Maryland, but don’t hold me to that.  A lovely Bride & Groom have commissioned this sketch of their wedding venue.  Can you imagine getting hitched on these grounds?!  Enchanting!

just a sneak peek…

4 oil washes and counting…very much a work in progress.

Caty / Mary update…

July 20, 2008

It’s been a long time coming on these two portraits.  Mary (on the right) is still quite undeveloped, Caty (on the left) is approaching the “over-worked” line…it’s a delicate balance, and thus I haven’t pushed.  I’ll work on them for a few hours, then come back to them the next day.  (Which is also, a lovely way to work with oils, as it allows the previous layer  time to dry.)

I’ll be so thrilled to finally peel the tape off of these two…maybe tomorrow?

On another note, don’t forget that today is the last day to enter my Blog-A-Versary Give-A-Way!
