A Dog and A Digital

"Fluffernutter"
12" x 13" acrylic and collage on canvas

Here he is...Mr. Fluffernutter. Don'tcha just love that name?...and what a cutie pie dog to match! Fluffer was a challenge but a real joy to paint. I think I changed the background five times on this one before I was happy.

And since I posted that painting by Inez Storer recently...I thought I would post this older digital piece of mine. Seems to have some eerie similarities. Any thoughts? Oooh...and we both painted these in 2002. (thanks for pointing that out Sandy!)

"Guise"
5.25" x 6" Digital Painting - 2002

And last but not least...two of my favorite Artists are having special discounts on some of their work until the end of this month. You should check them out here...

Sarah Regan Snavely's Etsy store for her beautiful Greyhound Tiles.

Jamie Johnson's "Really Big Sale" for originals, tiles and reproductions of her fabulous house paintings. (check the side bar for additional works)

What a fantastic job on that dog. I love the look in his eyes.

And wow, the colors and the "feel" of the blouse floating is so similar. I really like this. I'm wondering what date you both did your separate pieces,....like you were tuned into something there. That's amazing.

Hi Linda!
I LOVE your new dog painting. You absolutely captured his spirit and I love when you show works from the past that I have not see yet. You are so talented!
