Calvin

Well I delivered Sachmo to my client and he was delighted. And he has ordered another portrait for a friend. Things have been pretty crazy with my work so I haven't got much done, but I at least got a little blocked in, so here is Calvin.
Calvin 18x24 inches acrylic, work in progress
 Yes, another Yellow Lab, most all the pics I have of this guy, he's in his winter coat, so longer fur than the others. In one pic there is a green tennis ball behind him, I'm thinking I might put it in front of him, between his paws. Don't forget you can click on the picture to see it larger.

Happy Paint Party Friday! Sorry I missed the party last week, just way too much stuff going on in my life right now. Thank you to everyone who has stopped by and commented or 'followed' my blog, really appreciate it!

Besides painting and my regular job I have been working on my garden and writing articles over on Squidoo. And trying to stay cool, has been 106+ this past week, I think one day it was pushing 110.

Don't forget to hop on over to PPF and join the party!

PS. I am trying to decide which postcards to send to the Liberate Your Art swap and can't make up my mind! So if you have a minute, please take a look and tell me which one is your favorite!
