New Dog on the Block
Taking a step aside from all the abstract work, here's a new painting of Chico...a sweet and sassy boy from Denver. Chico was the only dog commission I accepted early on last year after discovering I was going to have a solo show of my abstract paintings.
I have to thank my client, Sue...who was so very nice and patient during the process. We agreed that I would work on Chico when I had the time but that I needed to devote most of my time to the show. I have to say, it wasn't as easy as I thought to shift mental gears back and forth from abstracts to doggies. Having as much time as I needed though made all the difference so when I worked on Chico...I was able to give him my full love and attention.
By the way...it was Maisie's fourth birthday on Monday (Valentine's Day)! I love this picture of her in front of my studio...it's her "vogue" pose. Really though...she was following a Bee.
