Boys and Their Toys

30 x 40 watercolor on canvas

My personal favorite of the three paintings. Even without knowing the words, can't you just "hear" what they're saying? I liked painting on canvas, and I liked the look of the final varnished surface, and I even liked the idea of being able to get up close and personal to the surface --- but IMHO, watercolors belong in a matt and under glass. Just what I am used to.

Waiting for a Table

24 x 30 watercolor

The second of the commissions mentioned yesterday. I was going to title this "Dogs Eat Free" but that doesn't seem to be universally true in this country. I have seen it in Italy, where the dog sits in a chair and has his own dish at the table!

Siesta or Sale?

24 x 30 watercolor

A case of diverging agendas..... One of 3 commissioned paintings on the theme of regular folks out and about doing regular (upbeat) things.
