Another rainy afternoon with thunder and lightning, so I decided to take my work from the studio into the house and draw on the couch with Polly. Starting a rough sketch for a house portrait commission. It's hard not to fall asleep!
Saturday morning at the craft fair I met these lovely dogs!
Meeting Ripple was a real surprise! Last summer I saw a couple riding bikes and a dog riding in the knapsack of one of the bicycles. I jumped out of the car and tried to be discreet for I wanted to photograph them. I created a painting of it and made prints.
I had no idea who they were. Well, they all appeared in my booth at the fair!
Puddin' and Moose stopped by. Here's Puddin' when I had painted her with her beloved Penny.
I had the pleasure of meeting this new addition to a family I know and her name is Cosette.
I had painted another dog, Monique, for this family in 2001.
The weather was ok til the afternoon. Stop by here to see more of the craft fair... Will write more soon... still undwinding!
I'm an artist/illustrator specializing in ink and watercolors and photography. My little studio in Maine is nestled in our garden by a babbling brook. Everyday I draw inspiration from the pets who have touched my life, our garden, birds and wildlife critters, quaint old houses, children, shells, scenes of the seaside and more.
Hope to share my art and observations with you and don't forget to take a moment to notice the precious little things around you.
