#317 - Obedient Oliver


6"x 6"  oil on masonite  Sold

This is one of two commissioned paintings for my Uncle Mike. This is Oliver, beloved pooch of Mike's son Steve.

edit: Whoops! I accidentally mixed up the name of the next painting onto this one. "Sid" is the next one (another pet painting). This one is "Obedient Oliver" (notice the I changed the post heading, but it's still painting number #317). This is another good argument for dummies like me: Number your paintings and your always be able to reference them no matter what your title. :P

Happy New Year! Wait…what? You say I’m over a month late on that? That’s just like me to be late, but as I like to think, it’s never too late to start a new day (or a new year). So, I’ll just call this day (Feb 8th) the start of my new year.

I know I haven’t been posting lately but I have been painting and so I’ve got bunch to post up (animals, landscapes, still life etc). I’ve also got a new painting setup that is pretty eccentric but works great for me. Hopefully I can get around to sharing that soon also. In short, I'm back in production.

Thank much for the comments, Sam, Denna, Kim and Julie and Carol! Yes, I'm back. Late as usual, but back in the saddle. Thank you all for visiting! :)

Jeff - I have a cairn that looks very much like this dog except he is black/grey. Love your style. Thank you for the art insights. I have a blogger site and I would like to have a page that shows my work like you have. How do you do that? I am new to blogging as or January, so any insight I can glean is wonderful.
