Pug No. 3
Oil on canvas, 12x12, commission
I must say, I love this painting. The pug had such a top-dog attitude in the photos I had, and yet, he seemed worried and about to run - all at the same time. I had fun with his expression. I bet he's a corker of a pup.
Snowing again this morning, a beautiful, straight-falling snow that began as the sun came up. Puffy, our mean and always-dirty cat, is sitting at the back door, watching little birds peck seeds on the back deck. For her, it must be like watching TV - food TV, probably.
The studio is almost finished! The electricians are coming back today, a door and a banister are going in, and that's it. I will post photos when it's all done.
Before the work could be done, we had to move nearly everything out of the studio. I had not realized how much junk I'd already brought in there until the place was empty - and it was then that I realized how much I like it - and need it - nearly empty. So the challenge now will be to take the right stuff back up there, and find a place for everything else.
