Meet Virginia -New Painting

Completed 8/20. "Meet Virginia" and company. I grew up in a small humble house but we had fancy wood paneling in our living room that my father insisted on when we remodeled in the 70's.
I remember babysitting for our neighbors who had the cutest little dachshund just like this one. This painting is 16x12 painted on stretched canvas with painted sides. Thanks for stopping by to meet Virginia!

How true this is....

"I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain."

Flowers For Gracie-New painting

It's been a while since I've done a floral piece.  I had started this a while ago but with commission work pending I had put it aside.  The colors are very vivid and were so fun to work with. I have definitely been looking at a lot of Matisse's  paintings and it shows  through. This painting is 16x20 painted on gallery wrapped stretched canvas.  The sides have been painted to match.
Thanks for looking.  For sale click the link.
