30 Paintings in 30 Days Day 18!!

This is Tucker.  He is a "big galoot" who was rescued in Edmonton by my neice, Nicole and her husband, Kam.  When they first got him he was very wary around kids.  But since George and Hunter came along, (and a soon to be sibling in July) he's just fine.  When they come to Murphy Lake, tucker loves to go running with Nicole and swimming for sticks.  He has the most expressive ears, too.  When he was younger, one always seemed to be up and one down.

This Australian Shepherd is a beloved, energetic Australian Shepherd.  She has a human brother and a Beagel brother, too. 
I love her attentive look and engaging smile.

30 Paintings in 30 Days Day 16

whoo hooo!!  Over half way!  This is Day 16.  I painted a really awesome pet portrait yesterday, and I will share it on Sunday.  It was commissioned as a gift..... Sooo, I had to paint an additional painting yesterday.  This little calf was born near Irma, Alberta just the other day.  Ashtyn sent me some great photos of the babies.  I think this would be the perfect artwork for the Fixer Upper Style, Joannna Gaines type decorating.  All white on white.

This is Wicket.
He is a beloved member of a Saskatoon Family, who got all dressed up for his portrait.
This  Shih Tzu reminds me of our Bailey dog.  We had her for 16 years and loved her big eyes and her cute underbite.

Wow,   I scheduled myself quite heavily last week........and I was tired.   So yesterday, Valentine`s Day, I went for lunch with my sweetheart, and gave myself a break.  I reposted `Buster` I painted him in January 2017 for that 30 in 30. 
I hope you all had a wonderful day.

Day 11.  This has been such a busy art week.  I had a tradeshow, taught a painting afternoon at my grandson's Kindergarten, finished a large custom angel wings painting, a not as large custom angel wings painting, 6 pet portraits, last night I painted live at the Little Italy Gala in support of the Lloydminster Sexual assault centre, and donated a custom painting for the live auction.... the winning bid was $900 ( I was thrilled) we danced til the wee hours,  and tonight I am teaching a small group of ladies an angel wings class.  Whew!!
Next week, I just plan to teach one class and paint for my 30in30.
