This one makes me laugh. Why a dog? Well, I put a tiny cat in the window of the victorian house a few days ago and thought that except for a couple of failed attempts at horses, I'd never painted an animal. And this photo of our black lab Sailor (God rest her soul)as a pup was on my table, so....
This was the latest for Karen Juric's Different Strokes from Different Folks challenge. If you are not familiar with it, click the link to see the photo she used to challenge all of us, and all the wonderfully varied art that everyone submits.
Its 8 degrees this January morning. How could I not be thinking of how I wish it was summer and I was on the beach instead of dreading going out of my house at all? Besides, I live at the Jersey shore...I have to paint beaches. This is Ocean Grove in the early morning...the sun was going in and out.
This daily painting serves two purposes as it was done for Karen Jurik's latest Different Strokes for Different Folks challenge. I think I can rightly count it as a daily painting as I listened to my boyfriend and did not "fiddle with it" so finished it in about an hour. I wish it was alittle darker, as it is a night scene, but I'm happy with the dusky look.
I've been painting everyday for a while now but since I use my regular blog for news about shows and receptions and such I decided I'd rather post my daily work in it's own spot since not all of it will make it to MY MAIN SITE.
