I'm in Santa Fe this week visiting my painter friend Ann but promised to have this painting done for a friend in time for her son's birthday. Carson was Jimmy's beloved dog and my Border Collie Dooley's nemesis. Unfortunately both are no longer on this earth but they will always be with us.

Living in Point RIchmond, it wasn't too hard to get to Sausilito yesterday even with the Bay Bridge closure putting more traffic on the Richmond/San Rafael Bridge. It was a beautiful day, lots of sun, cool breezes, great art, music, food, etc. Here are a few pictures of the fun.
This is NOT my date, but an incredibly lifelike sculpture by Marc Sijan.
Oil on Canvas
12 x 24 inches
This week I completed my painting for the Karin Jurick challenge, Different Strokes from Different Folks, which is posted o her blog approximately every two weeks. Many of you may already be familiar with her work and her blog and web sites. I particularly liked the subject matter of this challenge as it reminded me of Wayne Thiebaud's paintings of cakes and pies, etc. Unfortunately I have a lot more trouble photographing and downloading pictures of my paintings than the actual painting itself. It's still not quite right, but I'm posting it here to see how it looks on a computer screen. The painting is oil on canvas, 12 x 24 inches. The frosting is heavy imposto a la Thieaud's pasteries. Would look great hanging in a kitchen. If interested in purchasing, please contact me at m email address, firstname.lastname@example.org.
