OMG how did so much time go past!!

Wow, I can't believe it's been so long since I posted any paintings!

I've done some, but no pictures to post!!! Guess I need to get busy!

Anyway, my website is down for repairs, and who knows when I'll get them back up and running! I might be moving from this blog to wordpress? maybe? instead of a 'real' website? any thoughts?

So, just to give you something to look at here is one of my favorite paintings :)

I've been doing some glass fusing, and some stained glass work (again, no pictures - but I do have an etsy shop - WackyPup on Etsy

Also, I have been busy traveling in my tiny camper with my husband and two dogs - from the east coast to the west coast, but not much up the middle :)  (if you're interested, I have blog about the camper here - Wacky Pup )

if you'd like an original painting in exchange for a night or two of parking our camper in your driveway - let me know, I'd love to meet you!

Georgia's Pub - Memorial Portrait

Georgias Pub 
16" x 20"
Oil on Wooden Panel

I completed this "Pub" portrait a few months ago. I'm so far behind on posting!  I got a wonderful note from Georgia's owner when he received it:

"Our beloved Golden Retriever Georgia passed away after a full life and I was looking for a way to remember her. I saw Liz's website and sent her a few photos. Liz captured her physical look and in an uncanny way was able to capture her personality also. I put this pub sign up outside of our  games room and it is almost like Georgia says hello every time I walk in. This is a great way to memorialize a beloved pet."

The portrait was actually composed from two different photos - one of her face, and one of her body.

I am on the last phases of completing another pub sign which I will eventually post :)

Thanks for your interest in my artwork, and emails. Please feel free to comment.

Cougar II (Mountain Lion)

I painted from this reference photo a few years ago and it is one of my most popular paintings. I thought I'd give it another whirl and see what I did differently.

Mountain Lion II

4 1/2" x 4 1/2"

I'm very happy with the way this turned out. I like it a lot better than the first one :)

I'm working on a pub sign that I'll show you soon.
