Getting Ready for Art Shows

Houdi's Ball
Oil on canvas
4 ft x 3 ft

I've been getting paintings ready for the various shows I have coming up.  The first one goes up this coming Sunday, November 27th, at Clementine's in Harrisonburg, VA.  The opening, for anyone in the area who can come, is Thursday, December 1, 5-7pm, in the downstairs lounge area.  I hope to see you there!

This painting is of a pretty cool dog, Houdini, better known to his friends as Houdi.  Houdi is a Border Collie, sans tail, don't ask how, that was adopted by our younger daughter's boyfriend.  The painting is actually larger than Houdi actually is, which is kind of fun I think.  It has been a lot of fun to paint these larger than life paintings!

Great colors in his fur, or is it hair? So large. I avoid those, Maybe you'll be my inspiration!
