Archie (now Timmy)
Oil on canvas, 12x12
This painting of my brother's dog, Archie, was truly the first of the minimal paintings I made since the end of June. And on Saturday, it, and "Neighbors" sold at the Amagansett Fine Arts Festival, here on Long Island.
Sometimes God, or the universe, or whatever you want to call the thing that's bigger than us, speaks in whispers, and sometimes it shouts.
This time, it's shouting.
Dog of the Day
Lori Rowe, a fantastic artist who specializes in delightful and often whimsical paintings of dogs (check out her stuff by clicking here!) sent me this photo of Maggie, who will be 20 - TWENTY! - come August.
Lori used to live near us when we lived in Ledyard, though she and her husband moved first to New Mexico and next to Chicagoland. She's a huge Red Sox fan, a rescuer and lover of dogs, and a great person, on top of everything else.
