"Flushed" 16 x 20 oil on panel
After a late one last night I finally finished this painting. I used some great reference pictures taken at Mountain View Plantation in Delta, Alabama. They have some beautiful dogs and a great lodge. As for now this will be the center piece for the upcoming show.

Still Life Practice

"Monday Still Life" 8 x 10 oil on canvas
So last Saturday I taught a still life workshop using acrylics. Before the workshop I brushed up (pardon the pun) on how to paint a still life the way the masters always have. Very interesting researh and a great learning experience for me. So I came home and had to really put it to the test. I did several different still lifes and had a blast. I used very loose brush strokes and finished each painting within a matter of hours. Here's one of them.
