Hello! It’s been ages, too long in fact since I’ve been on my blog regularly, but that’s ok, better to wait until I bring something of use, than useless fodder? - or is it?Read More
I absolutely love to see dogs doing silly things but sometimes they are just not silly enough - to counteract this, I'm going all out silly woofers in a new collection of paintings I'm working on.
As I am sure you have recognised now, I'm a bit in love with my own dog, Barney and pretty much everyone else's too. I've always loved them, they just make me so happy.
With this in mind and from all the studying I have been doing for my bespoke dog portraits (www.ipaintdogs.com) I'm going to go doggier crazy and mix them into my paintings. Dog Groomers, Elvis Dogs, Dogs on a day out - all are in the planning stage but for now, I thought I'd show you some of the paintings I've just finished - you can see them under 'Fun Dog Paintings'.
Am utterly delighted to report that they are going down a storm.
Woof! Sam x
