I've finally decided to start a blog, posting my paintings as I get them finished. I'm not quite ready to join the ranks of other "daily painters," creating a painting every day. But I do hope to post several times a week and this will (hopefully) keep me on track to paint every day, even if I don't actually finish a painting every day!
These first several posts will be from a series I'm doing of "The Dogs of Pepper Place." For those of you not familiar with Pepper Place, it's a Saturday morning market featuring local produce, flowers, honey, cheese.... The list goes on and on. There is also an area for artists and art organizations, and Sam and I will be there under the Birmingham Art Association tent on July 3rd from 7am 'til noon. So many people bring their dogs that I decided to create a series of paintings based on photos I've taken.
