Working Side by Side

Starting fresh today with a body of new work. Keeping it interesting with two works at once! --- A portrait and a small still life. 

First up, a portrait of our handsome neighbordoodle. Working to showcase his sweet disposition and good looks shining through the curls. It starts with the eyes...


Also on this bleak April morning (with threats of more snow), I'm working on a small still life featuring my favorite of my still life glassware favs, a peach-colored Hungarian glass surrounded by the blossoms of a blue/purple hyacinth. At least the fragrance of the flower brings the promise of spring if the weather outside my window doesn't....
