"Selfie" in my happy place

Spending time doing what I love in a place I love.This "Selfie" painting is going up in my art studio in Sicamous, B.C. My friend Karen took a photo of me painting in my Sicamous art studio and that was my reference. You can tell I enjoy the bright sunlight streaming in through the windows.

"Goliath 2" A Pet Portrait

Above is "Goliath 2" in progress. These are some of the wild colours I chose to start this painting. Goliath is a loved member of Mindi and Dave's family, an elderly pet. I wanted to try painting this again (click here for Goliath 1) to catch Goliath enjoying the ocean in Mexico. Below is the finished painting.
