Mr. Duke died in the night. If you did not know him, he was my sweet, kind and patient border collie mix. In his last days he did not want to leave my studio. I feel he was telling me to be more creative, spend more time in the studio and hug him more. My blog will not let me post photos right now. So I will post him later.
I will not post art today. I must remember the gifts he gave me. Most importantly was unconditional love. Here he is! It took 2 days to get his photo here. He was a great painting companion as well!
I love painting and the world around me is amazing. Life is to short and I want to see the best in people. I am putting a few drawings on eBay, as I have time. My Etsy store is empty for now, maybe when I retire or finish my M.F.A. or just find some extra time, I may try again. My Blog is more a forum to share what I am painting, my growth, both failures and successes. I am also working on my M.F.A. in painting and working full time as a high school art teacher. I am an 10 year cancer survivor so I have been given a special gift of life and want to enjoy it to it's fullest.
