I'm trying new things in 2016. By "new things" I mean painted treasures, and painting new breeds! My first new breed for 2016 is the stunning Samoyed. I am enchanted by these beautiful white dogs! I'll continue to paint them, they've embedded themselves in my heart, but I plan to do (hopefully) at least one new breed a month for the next 9 months. Feel free to suggest a breed! Either contact me through this site or comment below.
While the snow lingers in Northern Michigan (even though the temperatures have been in the 50's most of the week!) I am dreaming of seasons to come. Thoughts of butterflies, birds, and lots of pretty flowers keep me sane through the long winter. As I look out my window at the bare tree branches and the fog hovering over the melting snow (brrr!) my mind takes me to places like this, and I am happy.
"Summer Bliss" Samoyed
I won't add any commentary. Just enjoy the photos!
I ended up taking the canvas off the stretchers and filling in the corners to get a bigger picture out of this one! I'm glad I did, the end result is a much better design.

Don't forget to share your suggestions for breeds! I'm excited to try something new!
Thanks for reading!
