I love Border Collies and Aussies! This painting is in acrylic and is 24 x 30".
I chose to glaze a jewel toned turquoise over parts of the painting for vibrancy.
I love the way it turned out and hope everyone else does too.
So far my efforts to join the dog communities has been more of a challenge than I anticipated. thug I have sent out over a dozen query letters to various dog organizations the response has been slow or none. Wonder if it's me... My letters are short and pleasant explaining who I am with a few images and links to my site. My follow up calls and messages are sometimes answered.
Well I got a break this November when the AZ Greyhound Rescue was kind enough to squeeze me into their fall festival. It is a very nice, short venue and I am pretty excited and glad to be included. Plus just had an interview with Tucson Lifestyles Magazine - Yipee!! I am looking forward to more commissions doing work I love. My new Vets are interested in purchasing some of my work so that is really cool too.
After a long slow hot summer it feels good to speed up again. Now back to work!
