An update:

I know that I have not posted on here since St. Paddy’s Day. No, I was not off on a drunken adventure. I was moving instead. So there’s my short update :p I already have a few ideas in mind for new drawings, and now that I’m settled in I will post more regularly. Hopefully.

The winner of the St. Paddy’s Day art contest is…

Kaye Menner! Congrats. Her photograph, entitled “Geranium Leaves – Reflections On Pond” really captures the beautiful color green for St. Paddy’s Day!

Blog post of 3/13/17 – another art sale & St. Paddy’s day art contest

Yesterday I had another person buy my scribble dachshund drawing on Etsy!

ets6-scribble

My weiners, errrr, I mean dachshunds seem to be very popular!

Anyways, I just finished reading “Essential Blake” by Stanley Kunitz, a collection of William Blake’s most important poems,  & have started reading “The Portrait of Dorian Gray” by Oscar Wilde.

Check out my art contest on Fine Art America for St. Paddy’s Day. I just had to do one being part Irish and enjoying a drink or two or five

The voting will begin in on Wednesday & anyone can vote!

Hope all my readers are having a wonderful day!

Walking the Dog Drawing

rsz_dachund_walking

I got the idea to do this drawing after seeing the artwork & listening to the soundtrack of one of my favorite films, “Mon Oncle (My Uncle)” by Jacques Tati.

If you haven’t seen it, here’s a link to a funny clip: Kitchen Scene

Anyways, I used a black colored pencil to outline the figures & blue & pink watercolor for color.

Prints are available for purchase on Fine Art America.

I hope that you don’t think this drawing is too Pawful ^^ (I just couldn’t resist making a bad pun.)
