Mini Dachshund. Oil on canvas, 12x12

I've fallen behind in my 12x12 canine project for Sandy at Center Framing and Art in West Hartford. It's a really cool idea, I think - I make 12 12x12 paintings of dogs, as wild and free as I want, and she hangs them in the front window of the gallery. Luscious!

I finished this dachshund today, and I'm pretty happy with it. I love the colors, and the snotty look in this little guy's eye, as though he knows he's the king of the world, and it's about time you knew it, too.

I just spoke with Chris Rose, who runs the Lighthouse Gallery in Groton, and he's invited me to show there in March. Exciting! It's my favorite gallery around here, comfortable and intimate and welcoming. Chris does a great job with it. Right now, he's showing paintings by Sunil Howlader, and they are stunning, a bright mix of abstract backgrounds with realism overlaid. I'm thinking of trying an all-animal show, if Chris would agree.

Thanks for reading!
