" the road ahead "

                                                           7 x 9 Acrylics

This is for Angela's moleskins of "the flying moleskins"project . it seems that I reverted to what I like to paint, roads, trees and such with shadows. ( I guess it's my theme in your book Angela) Sorry !
May the road ahead for you be always filled with laughter, mercy, grace, but especially love dear Angela. Hope you like it. 
It's coming your way Michelle

                                                    8  x  10    Oil

This is Grace my chocolate labrador. I have many pictures of her but until now I had never done an oil painting of her or any other animal btw.
I have to say the original painting looks so much better. I had a hard time adjusting the browns it was getting so green and red. 
Oh well, here she is looking as I'm getting ready to go and wondering will I take her with me ?
BTW I purposefully choose a picture that was somewhat blurry because I wanted a more painterly feel, as I had to just make up some of the areas. It forces me to just paint with out being too precise. I have a tendency to be exact so I try to find ways to get me in the opposite direction.
