Dash, take 3

"Everyday is like Sunday"
8 1/4" x 9 3/4"

Way back in January, when I was doing the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge, I saw my old friend Melissa's photo of her Golden Retriever, Dash, and just HAD to paint it.  I fell in love with the pose and of course I'm a big sucker for Goldens...I painted twice in January, and just couldn't seem to capture what drew me to it in the first place.  I tried again this week, but I think the lesson here is that some photos are SO good as photos, that they don't make good watercolor paintings...

what's new in May...

Well, I have been MIA for a while, but very busy making art!  I have been dilligently fillling my sketchbook everyday and posting the painted sketches on Instagram, (you can follow me in Instagram @cindymcd)...

as well as working on some larger pieces that I will soon be listing on Daily

9" x 12"

Also, I am excited to announce that that I am now represented by the Walsingham Gallery in Newburyport, Massachusetts.  They have five of my dog paintings and I hope to receive some commisions through them as well.
