16 x 20 inch oil on paper
On Tuesday I returned to Brian Hinkle's art class at Tessera Fine Art Gallery and jumped right in starting this 16 x 20 inch oil on paper. Using one of my sketches as inspiration, the figures went down quickly. There will be birds in this piece once it is all said and done.

Here is a full view of the piece. You can see another oil painting in the background which I have shown recently. That one is slow-going because I have been really indecisive about color.
I caught this shot the other night of my dog Hurley. He has so many facial expressions and this one is precious. Kind of pitiful, but precious.
Speaking of Hurley, do you remember the above photo? I posted it a while back.

Well a couple of days ago I was surprised and so touched to receive the above painting from Patty Musgrove with Listen to the Road. Patty paints the most beautiful animal portraits and I could not believe she would give me such a gift. Tears. Many of them. Thank you so much Patty. Life is sad right now after losing my mom and this gift is so joyful and uplifting.
Please click on the photo to view her beautiful brush strokes. She captured him perfectly.
Have a nice weekend everyone.
