I realize I have not been keeping up with posting my paintings. I have been painting, just not posting. But I like this one the best of the last few days - from a picture I took of our dogwood in the front yard. But representative of all the dogwoods that I have seen this week in Arkansas.

I think I got Rusty too dark. I need to do him larger so I can do justice to the subtle coloring of his coat.
On April 3 I took my first day off from painting since I started on January 3. That was the day that we put our dear Shasta to sleep. She was such a wonderful dog and I miss her very much.

Went to a Doobie Brothers concert Sunday night and was inspired to attempt this. The effect from a distance is pretty good. I masked the figures, but forgot to mask the lights - big mistake! I started with the colored streams of light, then did the darks, then back to the colored lights at the end. I think in retrospect I should have masked those as well and saved for last. I might try one like this again - it presented a lot of challenges.
