I mentioned a few weeks ago here that I painted some chickens for a poster for the upcoming Retreat hosted by Suzanne McMinn of Chickens in the Road fame.  That art is featured on her website now.  Take a look at it here.  I am looking forward to being a part of the Retreat as I will be teaching several painting workshops.  And the good news is there is only a few spaces left.  It fills up fast!

This is Cochise.  He is a beautiful Rottweiler that I got to meet recently.  I had actually met him and his sister, Cheyenne, as pups.  But now that he is grown and well over 100 pounds he’s a lot of dog when he jumps up to hug you!

These beautiful babies belong to Betty and Steve who commissioned their paintings.  You can see Cheyenne here.

Representational Abstract is a form of painting that combines the loose ease of abstract with art we recognize.  Even though we see the bright colors and long brush strokes in this work we can still see that it looks like a landscape scene.

This is some of the things we will explore on Saturday at the Art Workshop in Strasburg.  Join us for three hours of fun and learning.  Contact kwalker@doubledogdesigns.com .
