Happy and busy, my two favourite words.
This evening my daughter (9) asked if she might have two puddings because she had eaten two dinners (same dinner but seconds). I love the way she views the world.
Do you remember that ad campaign by 02 I think it was - 'Be More Dog' sometimes, through the power of marketing, I think of that term as my woofer Barney, is banging around the park, interested only in his ball. Thinking only moment to moment. Recently I've been doing the same only thinking painting to painting - and it's been wonderful.
Since I opened my new website, dedicated to my woofer commissions (www.ipaintdogs.com) it's been a whirlwind of enquiries for commissions.
I have so enjoyed working on just one painting at a time instead of my usual multi-painting and printmaking. I've loved working that way until about a year ago when I realised how exhausting it can be.
Then a new technique came along, I invested time in furthering my studies in perspective and a whole new world opened up for me.
I hope you enjoy my new paintings and needless to say, if you have a woofer in your life that you'd like a painting of, get in touch.
Much love, Sam x
