Leo the Pug Painting

I guess I’m finding my stride. I’m starting to develop a looser painting style, limiting my brush choices and loving these little dog paintings. So I painted my Bro-in-law’s pug Leo. May he rest in peace.


I found it was really difficult painting a dog you actually played with and remember petting when he was with us. I teared up a little at the memories. Leo was a good dog. Til the very end.

We miss you little man.

Lugano Train Station Painting Complete

And on the heels of the “Bales” painting, I have finished the “Lugano Train Station” painting as well. Since this is traditional canvas rather than wrapped I will be getting this one framed for the client. Cheers!
