This is Cosmo. He is half Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and half Poodle.....a designer dog or what we used to call a mutt. Cosmo has a great personality, is sweet, and full of energy. He thinks he is a lap dog, but believe me he is way too big to sit on anyone's lap. If Cosmo were human, he would be labeled a social butterfly. The more the merrier with humans and animals. When Cosmo enters a room there is no quiet. He's a great dog!
This was painted from a photograph I took in Florida last November. I know summer is just around the corner, but after all the snow and cold weather it does seem like it is slow in coming. This painting was a good reminder that warm weather will be here before we know it!

This was not an easy task, as there are so many good blogs! These are only a few that I enjoy and would like to share. I could add more and more - although it would probably take me days to do it! Enjoy these twelve - they are wonderful! :-)
Here are just 3 of the many photographs I took while taking care of 3 of my grandchildren.:-) I had such a good time and the snow - we had a foot!! - was an added bonus. Thankfully we had power, but did not have satellite for a couple of days so no tv and no computer. Not a bad thing. Snow in Texas doesn't last long and today we have sun!
First, I need to apologize for the bad photograph. This was a really fun painting. I painted this lady with a palette knife. The colors went on thick and juicy. Fun and a great learning experience. Isn't every painting a learning experience?
This is a painting I did from a photograph I took last spring at the Paint Out at Prairie Fest in Fort Worth. There were some fantastic artists working that day. You can get some wonderful paintings and it is just fun to be in this beautiful prairie in the middle of Fort Worth.
I haven't been able to photograph any paintings in the last few days. I need to learn how to photograph inside without getting glare. It just continues to rain and rain so I am having a difficult time getting outside to photograph.
