Happy Anniversary

This painting was done as an anniversary gift from Jen to her husband Jason. She wanted a painting of their yellow lab, Sam, swimming in the South River and sent me a photo. I thought that I recognized the dog from last September when I was doing my Painting Safari there. Sure enough, I actually had photos of the couple and their dog which I had taken surreptitiously. So, how to explain the stalker behavior?  Well, I just came out with it and she understood about the artistic license thing,  Thankfully :D
Contact me if you'd like to join me on my outdoor painting Safari which I will be starting as soon as the weather cools down.

Cleaning the Catch on Naples Pier

"Cleaning the Catch" 18x24 oil on canvas
Our hot summer rolls on here by the sea. I wish I could say that I'm accomplishing lots of things, but mostly I'm just getting a few home  and yard improvements taken care of and reading on the beach or in my air conditioned rooms. 
This 18"x24" scene of people cleaning fish on Naples Pier is on stretched canvas and was painted for the Faculty show at Von Liebig Art Center in Naples. It goes up October 20th through November 24th. Preview party is Friday night, October 19th.

Girls Just Wanna Paint

It's important to note that I am not always completely successful in my paintings and I don't post any that aren't up to my standards. This is different because I'm stretching and need some feedback. I was going for that backlit, sparkly sunlit water thing and I almost wiped it.  
Can You tell what's going on here?    
This is my entry for Girls Just Wanna Paint.
