Oil on museum quality Ampersand Gessobord™ panel 8" x 10"

Once again I have been called into service to paint someone's dearly departed companion. This is Gideon in younger and happier days. I'm told he had 15 wonderful years with his owner since being adopted from Cocker Spaniel Rescue of New England. Rest in Peace Gideon.

"Tangier Sounds"

Oil on museum quality ampersand gessobord panel 8" x 8"

I know what you're thinking - "That's it!?! The first painting of the new year; the first painting off the easel in a month is an oyster painting!?! Where's the new series? Where's all the pent up inspiration gushing forth? Oysters...OYSTERS!!! We want something new; something fresh. We've seen this bit; what else ya got? Oops...sorry. Actually that is what I'm thinking and have been for a while now, which accounts for the lack of work on these pages. In my defense, oysters are fun to paint and just picking up the brushes after a month is a step in the right direction. Look for new work soon. Happy New Year!
