This is a 36" x 36" oil. Alot of glazes making it have an ethereal feel to the piece. I have it framed in a heavy wood frame. It's time to let go and move forward. This will be a great piece to chat about.
$1,275.00 or contact me with an offer. Thanks for looking.

I'll be printing 10 x 8" prints on my new Epson printer tommorrow and the prints will be available for sale. Thanks, Sheila
I removed it from the camera and placed it carefully on the table. It has now disappeared. My feeling is my trusted assistants, Sophie, Sammy and Fergus have "placed" it somewhere safe and they are not giving up that secret spot. Sigh. I'm feeling a trip to Staples today.
The Project is $260.00 from goal!!! I am amazed at people's belief in my abilities and overwhelmed at the support!! Thank you!! 40 days to go!!
If we have any Psychics out there please give me a hint where my tripod is. It doesn't want to be found..did I twist it's legs too much?
Off to the studio! :-)

Over the next six weeks we will be having a drawing each week for all new donors from the current week!
And at the end of our successful fundraiser effort, there will be a grand prize drawing for all donors!
The weekly drawing will be for an original pencil sketch (signed, framed and delivered) by me.
The grand prize drawing at the completion of a successful fundraiser will be a 4”x4’ original painting. All donors will be included in the grand prize drawing.
That means TWO chances to win!!! Plus all the goodies from being a donor.
Watch each week for more news on what sketch is being rewarded for the week. The grand prize drawing will be a surprise until the very end.
And if you have already donated money and want to donate more, you WILL be included in the weekly drawings.
I appreciate your support and enthusiasm for this project and want to share a little bit of great things to come as we get closer to the deadline!
So check it out, donate, comment, and make suggestions. My art is made possible by your creative and financial support!
With warm regards,

Working on my 2010 painting Project and writing the book, finishing way over due paintings for people and trying to keep up with the Lab Rescues and maybe something new, laundry, Labs etc...a few weeks ago I shut down.
So...off to my Dr to see what we could do. He gave me a script for a new drug for adult add and today was the first day I took it. I was nervous if I would change, how would I think? Would I loose me some where in medication??
I just want to say I am SO excited. I'm still me but when I do something now I don't think about email, I stay and do the painting. I think about what I'm doing, I'm having fun and using the abilities I already and confidently know. I said to my husband, "What would I have accomplished if I had been given the meds earlier in my life?" He replied, "Just think what you'll accomplish now!!"
So with that..even though this painting is called "Play Time" I secretly have named it "Victory!"
It's 10 x 8 x 1 on stretched canvas and 40% of the proceeds from the sale will go to Labradors and Friends in San Diego. To purchase go to http://savingalabaday.blogspot.com

I may post another later today. I have 4 paintings lined up for commissions so I need to work on those also today. Just wanted to keep you up to date on the process. The front Black Lab is taking over center stage so to speak. He is the foreground. I'll be working more on his face. The right side as you look straight on is in shadow so I really want to accent the left. My plan is to make his flopping ears "active", giving them the motion he is experiencing. We'll see.

Last night I thought it would be fun to go back to a technique I haven't attempted in years. I did a 1993 calendar in this method and I have always loved it.
