February Dusk ©2008 Karen Mathison Schmidt
5 x 7 • acrylic on Gessobord

OK gang, after almost ... um ... 3 weeks ... I’m back! The satellite is back up to full speed and so back to daily blogging.

I finished this little painting yesterday, and I'll list it tonight on eBay.

One major thing has happened while I was absent from the blogosphere. Our family has expanded by 2 new pups, rescues from down the road a piece. More on their story tomorrow ... meanwhile, here are their pics:

Here are Buster B and Tilda (short for Matilda).

Hasta mañana, mates!

glad youre back - i missed you and your beautiful work!!
tx for your comments on my blog - i do sense my own artistic growth too, and i gotta say, its a pretty awesome feeling.

These pups are gorgeous - your family is certainly growing :) and i am still jealous that i dont live out in the country :(

their coloring is just screaming to be painted i think!!

Beautiful painting - wonderful dogs! They look almost like Vizla's (I know i spelled that wrong!) but with black noses. Are they purebreds? Lucky them, to get a family like yours.

So glad you're back!

Thanks for the comments! I'm glad to be back on the blog.

Melanie - yep, I'm definitely planning some more doggie portraits of these guys in the very near future! I love the way the setting sun made their coats shine in these pics.

Kelley - I think they're mixed breed, but they do remind me of a pure bred something, especially Tilda. She looks like a show dog!
