SNOW PINE, and a new challenge...

I had to do a companion piece for my Pine Top contest choice. "Snow Pine" is another pine top after the snow...I have been so sick of snow lately I haven't done any landscapes, but I have to admit that I like the contrast of the white snow against the greens of the trees. "Snow Pine" is another 4x4 acrylic on fiberboard covered with canvas. It has the slots on back for hanging or can be set on the little easels I offer for these.
My husband's son came to visit over the weekend. Scott is a pilot and gets to fly in from time to time. It was good to see him and find out he is going to ask his girl to marry him in the near future...BUT it is a surprise...so shhhh...:) I had to share a pic of he and his dad...a nice looking couple of men!!
As a surprise for Scott and his future wife I decided to attempt to paint their new little baby they named Molly. Yep, another challenge. I don't think I've ever painted a dog before. I did a color pencil of one a long time ago, but this is a bit of uncharted territory for me...so wish me good luck...and...I've got to decide which color to use for the base...hmmm...what do you all think?

Molly is a beautiful Viszla, n'est-ce pas? She is gorgeous and looks like she is going to be loads of fun!! And yes, both your husband and his son are cuties. You sure some good looking guys in your life, Saundra!! LOL

Nope, not doing what I want to do for a job (not using my degree, not using my designation, just working at Walmart). With unemployment being up to 11% in this state now and me living in the boonies, I'm just thankful for having something that brings in a little income. 'Course, I could go back to subbing but I just do not have the stamina for the kids these days.

By the way! I so love the snowy tree! The contrasts of green/brown/white are so crisp and lovely!

Snow, visiting family, marriage proposals, new pups and challenges--lots going on in your life.

What about a beautiful blue under painting? Would that make it double the challenge? I was thinking it would be a nice support for the warm, caramel color of Molly. Enjoy the challenge.

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving, Saundra!

Your snowy Pine Top is wonderful. I have spent several years in the warm Southwestern climes after living in the Northwest and Alaska. I found it impossible to go another year without snow so we are now back in the Northwest. It's funny how the things you think are the most bothersome are missed the most when you leave them.

Happiest of Thanksgivings to you and yours.

How funny that you are doing a Vizsla. I have a commission for a graphite of one.

Saundra Lane Galloway said...

Thank you Coni! I agree...I've already started thinking of the things I'm going to miss...and, you are right...some of them will be the things I gripe about...!

Jeanne...I didn't know that was what she was called...thanks!! I have to find other pics so I can see what color her eyes are...I'd love to see your finished one!
