My brother-in-law, David, has quite a collection of sharks teeth. He and my sister, Julie, live in Ponte Vedra Beach near the ocean. :-) I took a photo of him when I was visiting. I think it makes a nice little painting.
This is a painting I did last Fall from a photograph I took at the home of Thomas Wolfe in Asheville, NC. My sister, Julie, and I take a little trip each year when the hot temperatures of summer have cooled and the trees are full of color. We laugh, get lost, eat, get lost, laugh some more, get lost, and see all the sights - those planned and those not planned. It's a trip we both look forward to each year.
I have been looking at art blogs for the past several months and decided that this would be something that I would enjoy. I've been a bit anxious about it, but I just need to dive in. The practice of painting every day or most every day will provide a discipline that I need and a way to improve. So here goes. No time is better than now. This painting is of our dog, Maggie. She is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the absolute sweetest, most intelligent, wonderful dog on the planet.
Now that I have started this, I guess it is time to publish. I hope it works!
