8x10 oil on canvas
so i was trying to get everything framed today...and of course.found some things I needed to tweak a bit..i am so damn tangential...i was on the floor of my studio cutting some backs for my paintings and saw this canvas that I had toned...it was a perfect excuse to do another boxer puppy painting..i did a little 6x6 one and someone stole it right out of the downtown midland...must have been a dealer..they now have cameras all over the place..thanks to me...so here's my second attempt and I like this one even better!!

30 x 30 oil on gallery wrap canvas
so i finished up one horse painting today..i think...haven't taken a good pic of it yet..snowed again and i can't photograph outside...but i thought i'd give this a try..i'm running out of days to get all these ortiginals done so they can dry..i may need to tweak this but i'm pretty happy with how it turned out...

oil on gallery wrap canvas
so we have had some stuff!!!...with all the cold weather last week..we had our electricity cut off for a while..only a matter of hours but it lead to our freezer conking out in the last day or two...our pipes burst under the kitchen and no hot water for a while..but that's fixed...so here's another painting i've done for my upcoming openings..some pretty ballerinas waiting in the wings..can't decide what to name it exactly...

36x36 oil on gallery wrap canvas
so I think i'm sneaking up on this...I need to photograph it in natural light..(outside)..so far i've only taken pix in my studio...you can always see thing that need to be fixed when you take a photo and use a fresh eye...so yes..i see some things i need to work on...but that's the fun of it, right???

6x6 oil on panel
this is day two..i actually painted this yesterday afternoon but my photo shop is still on the fritz..so here it is in my very dirty panel holder...these always look so much better when they're cropped so all you see is the image!..rats!!..we are expecting a blizzard in the next few days..woke up to 5-7 inches and it's been mostly snowing all day..they're predicting "Hercules"..(even named it?!) to hit Saturday night and continue through sunday..we may not make it over to the iu game on Saturday..playing everything by ear...meanwhile..i have plenty to do to keep myself occupied..since I have that studio upstairs I am one lucky little gull..(as my aussie son-in-law would say..)..i did two more small ones this afternoon...want to get a bit ahead in case we go over Saturday..happy new year!!!
