Background and final check

Almost done, my friend has a Mexican theme in her kitchen I thought this background would fit in with the mat colors really making the dogs pop.

Painting away

This is done on La Carte paper, the paper is about 9 by 12, although it will not be that size. I did fix Vegas's neck also on the final piece.


I first did the drawing on paper, I did make some minor adjustments on the drawing but not many

Tipsy and Vegas

Here are two photos of my friends dogs, Vegas and Tipsy. She wanted them in the same painting together. I had to use two different photos, one taken inside and one outside to achieve this. Dogs are just like kids, they just would not sit still for their photo.

Garden at San Juan Capistrano

Last summer we visited the mission at San Juan Capistrano. I remember visited this mission as a child and although it looked much different then I remembered the feelings and peacefulness of the mission still exists.

Not Quite Finished Yet

I am just playing around with the background at this point. Not sure if I like the light color or not, also have a few tweaks I need to do on the wheels.....I am going to let this set for a few days and then post the finished piece.

More with Tiny Teddy

This is what I got done today, I am loving creating a 3-D effect with Teddy.
Finished the head, finding the old paper quite a challenge, but fun.

A start on Tiny Teddy

I am working on La Carte paper, my fast growing favorite paper, just getting started on Teddy. Looked up this toy and it was made in 1962.

Tiny Teddy

I took this photo at a local antique shop, Bubbee's Goodz. They have quite the selection of items for me to paint...think I will be busy with them for a long time. I am going to show this as a work in progress
