Vacancy - a new oil on canvas

"Vacancy"
6" x 6"
oil on wrapped canvas

This one is painted around the sides - ergo - no frame needed.
There are so many of these falling down farmhouses in the area - thought I better paint a few before they are gone, gone, gone!

Sorry, I have been 'vacant' from this blog lately.  My mother-in-law who was 96, had several weeks of going down hill and passed away on Sept. 26 in New Mexico.  It had our family in a holding pattern.

We have also been remodeling a bathroom with installing a window where there wasn't one and putting in some tile for the shower stall - the plastic one just wasn't doing it for us.
Lots going on.  Lots of travel.  Nice to be back home and enjoying the fall - my favorite time of year!

Here is a photo of Bailey - the Weimaraner - enjoying the outdoors - he is really the best at 'couch potato'ing' lately.  Getting older I guess.

Thanks for checking in - even if there isn't anything new - there will be in the near future!

Hi pattie, such a sweet little painting. I have always said as artists we preserve history. Sweet photo of your babies too.

hi pattie, please forgive me for not offering my condolences, I am so sorry for your loss.

great idea to paint the side of the canvas. i've been doing it with backgrounds but haven't carried the actual subject matter out. looks great.

hope you are doing well.

Thanks Suzanne and Barb. I seem to leave that side painting til last - have several lined up to do so.
