Acrylics on 6"x6"x3/4" stretched canvas
My husband and I dropped off a car for a sweet lady's grandson at her home. She greeted us sweetly along with a wonderful fried chicken lunch with mashed potatoes and biscuits. So nice of her. This painting of her dog, Abby, will accompany my thank you note.

Acrylics on 6"x6"x3/4" stretch canvas
Someone asked me to paint this for a friend. I rarely laugh while I am painting but I did with this one. This sweet dog connected with me. He looks so like my favorite fictional character, Gandalf of The Lord of the Rings. I fell in love! I hope I have the opportunity to meet him and see what magic he/she possesses.

The Yellow Flower
Acrylics w/ acrylic skins on 6"x6"x3/4" stretched canvas
These paintings have been so relaxing to create. The focus is more on color than subject. That suits me fine. Painting representationally is very tedious and stressful. I find doing one of these florals relaxes me before going into the tougher stuff. It's not that it is easier. It's not. Just more imaginative and freer.
