Flutter-by - and Please Forward to Your Friends!

Oil on canvas, 12x12

Sometimes I try something new because I am interested. Sometimes I try something new because someone else is interested. 

This was the case with this painting. A sponsor of my Tubac trip wanted a painting of a butterfly for a friend who loves butterflies. I was a little hesitant - Butterflies??? Me??? - but I figured, what the heck? 

After all, that's pretty much how I learned to paint everything. 

Dog of the Day

I MET THIS dainty Samoyed this summer, on the ferry from Orient Point, NY, to New London, CT. She traveled often on the ferry, her owner told me, and always enjoyed the ride. We have a Samoyed, and he's about three times her size.
