I named him a rooster with a good attitude! because he is one of the few I know who is very nice , I can walk in front of him and not worry about my leg being attack , he is my neighbor's rooster and he comes and visit often. Today I was sitting on my deck cleaning my pastel box when I decided to paint him, I have painted him before in a smaller format .
I really need to get back in my routine of daily painting , but I have enjoyed the summer doing other things, Life is too short not to enjoy this beautiful month of August. email@example.com
After working on a commission all week at my studio that I cannot post yet because it is a surprise for someone who might see my blog. I was so dying to do this dog portrait, it had been on my list for awhile, this bundle who is 150 pounds is my grand dog Bradley, a Bernese mountain dog . I want to use him as an example for possible commission in the future, and before open studio in the fall.

I love this time of year at the pond where these beautiful bright red flowers grow at the edge of the pond , the Humming birds loved them! it's actually really called, Cardinal flowers,I imagine for it's bright red color ! Wild flowers are amazing ,so much beauty.
After a week at the pond and doing a lot of cleaning around the cabin I did take a break to paint the scene .The pastels stay in the back of my car so it's easy to take a quick break and paint something, that is our view that we have loved for over 30 years , I have painted this view so may times ,it always looks different. going home tomorrow I must get back to my studio at least for a few days, the Summer is so short , I am trying to enjoy every minute of it!

While in Maine after a day of painting or touring I would work on a miniature with colored pencil, they were kind of fun to do. The colored pencil gives it a different feeling . This boat is always there after a day's lobster catch, I like to see the fisherman's come back in their dory with lots of lobster boxes, they don't have time to talk much as they must bring it quicky to the fish market.
Nothing is better than a Maine lobster!
this miniature is available, just email me for details .
