Better put a T-bone on that eye.









Big Eyed Dog and his swollen eye will always be a favorite of mine. What possessed me to paint one of his eyes so large? Can't say. But I will say that this is my entry for swell over at www.illustrationfriday.com




And if you'd like to see some fab art and hang out with some local swells come to Art Perchance next week http://www.artsmia.org/art-perchance-2011/ I donated a framed print for the event. And it is one of the few times when a Joe Schmo artist like me can say I had a piece hanging at the MIA. Pretty cool.

These dogs are priceless.

I am still on virtual vacation – a sabbatical of sorts but love to pop in on people. To me it is something like opening the door on the outhouse...

You are always in for a big surprise!

I had to look twice to see that the one eye is so much larger. I think it looks perfect, just the way it is! :-)

You got that goggle eyed look just right! MOL, we love it.

I've got a piece in The Star, the Malaysian newspaper today that's a Living In Malaysia story like my blog. You can read it for free at http://tinyurl.com/3f3gd9z

this painting is fabulous!!!

Did you catch my blogpost Wed? There is a video of my office and I have your print on my wall!

If you read the comments from that day someone (I think it was Wockley but now I can't remember) commented on how much he loved that print. I commented on his blog and left him your name. You may want to pop over and see him and introduce yourself, he is completely smitten with that print (as I am!)

Love this dog! But what´s a Joe Schmo artist? Someone like me? Please visit my blog and fuel my mind.

Love the eyes! Subtle shading makes for the perfect, quizzical expression - like he's just told a joke and waiting for you to get it. Great line work too.
