Ok, I've been holding out on you. I finished her a while ago and didn't post her right away because she turned out so sweet. Not that I have anything against sweet paintings, but they don't usually flow from my paint brush. My women normally look a little more serious and even a bit gritty. This lovely lady looks like she's about to break into song with little birds appearing as the background chorus.
I wanted to try another painting with a dog (click here to see the first one) and really love how the two of them look at each other, which is why I'm calling it "Pure Love." Her dog's expression is one I know very well from our Winslow.
If you really, really, really like this painting, you can find it here in my shop!
In other news, we are getting ready to leave on Sunday for 10 days in New Mexico and Colorado, visiting our old stomping ground, all our friends there and some family as well. It's an area we loved living in and still think about moving back to one day.
I'll be taking my laptop and hope to post from the road, but if I don't post every day, I hope you'll forgive me and still come back to visit often!!
