6" x 6"
oil on pine veneer
NUMBER ONE!!! Woohoo - Happy New Year! I hit the ground runnin' today
and got this first one done in no time! I had DH cut me down some great
cabinet remnants I picked up a few years ago, (thanks Linda). They are cut into
small 6" x 6" squares for this challenge. I sanded them all, primed them with gesso,
then covered them with a colored coat of acrylic - this one is an eggplant purple underneath.
Miss Priss belongs to my cousin in Texas, Debbie. She has LOTS of doggies, and rescues
and advertises LOST dogs alot. She (and her daughter and niece) are dog lovers extraordanaire.
Because of her dedication, I chose Priss to be my first painting of the new year.
Priss is sooo tiny and a real heart stealer - she is a chihuahua.
P.S., my focus will be 'pets' - but what I am really working on is
big strokes of paint,
with minimal 'detail' strokes.
