"old fishing buddies" ....

It has been a hectic month.  I am in the middle of six commission paintings, all in various stages of completion  (or not!) and have had a lot of shows to put up and take down over the last several weeks.  Add to that lots and lots of baseball for my son and a daughter moving back home from college with a 9 week old lab puppy!  I took some time out this morning to finish this painting (while the puppy, Georgia, was napping) and am happy to have something new to post!

22" x 28" oil on canvas

And this is Georgia.  She is the newest addition to our family, although she is just passing through.  Georgia is an Assistance Dog for the Blind-In Training.  My daughter is raising her and we will get to watch her grow up for the next couple of years and then Georgia will leave us for her new life as a guide dog.  She is such a sweetheart.  I know that she will be someone's everything one of these days.

Love the boats--nice mix of colors and like your loose brushwork. And Georgia is beyond cute.

The colors and softness in the boats is just magical! Love them. And the puppy is priceless!!! How cute and how admirable that she will be such a great help to someone. My brother is vision impaired and I know what a great help these guide dogs are.
