New Work and Pet Haiku

"Blue River"
acrylic, collage and ink on canvas
available in my Etsy shop here

Here's the second of the three paintings I've been working on. The first was Dudley, the second is this Abstract...and the third is still in progress. My only hint about the third one is that it's yellow and sniffs. Hmmm...

I came across this article from SFGate.com the other day about their first annual Pet Haiku Contest. Here are a couple of them that really tickled me...hope you enjoy the rest!

"Gunther the glutton / preys on food left out, alone / No cheese plate is safe." -Leslie Nuccio

"We wanted a dog / But we got a toad instead. / You can't walk a toad." -Emerald (Age 12)

Hi-
Thanks for your visit to my blog and kind words about the new boxes.
This piece of yours is great. I love the colors and composition.

Hi Linda,

Love your newest abstract. You do them so beautifully.

I'm also guessing that the sniffer is a dog portrait....I will have to wait and see.

Hi Linda!

I like the textures you are getting in this abstract. It must be really something in person.

"you can't walk a toad..." that's funny.
