My two cute puppies are playing: Fred (the Blondy) was almost a year old, and George (the Red Head) was just a couple or three months. 

This is a fragment of a large painting that is still in progress. I just wanted to share those two brothers’ conversation. George was always picking on Fred; but, he was also learning…

I wonder what kind of lesson he is receiving here? 
Dog knows!

And speaking of learning, in my Figure Drawing class we are working on a lot of bones and body parts.

Here are just a few of them:

Some old and some new art pieces, ready to see the world.
For the last week and half I am painting every grocery item in a house to prepare for the Art Fair. On a short notice, I was invited to participate there; and, it is coming this Saturday. The art show is in a small retirement community in Pleasant Hill (175 Cleaveland Road, Pleasant Hill, CA) and because it is a small art show I am going to bring inexpensive and affordable art there. So, our house became a Craft Shop. I have chosen to paint on the watercolor boards (5″x5″ Aquabord by Ampersand) and I thought I’d play with some tasty fruits on each of them, centered, and with no background. 
I am also going to bring some cards (Thanksgiving theme and Christmas), Notebooks with my arts and various prints. I hope the folks like them. I think I will also have a small demo as when the last time I showed my art there some ladies were interested in the lessons:
Notebooks, Cards, Prints: all of these look so great on my new tile floor in the studio :0)
The preparation to the Art Fair was fun. The puppies were good sports. Yet, because my studio repair was still in-progress and I painted everywhere in the house but studio, something unexpected happened. I left a few watercolor boards unattended. Oops! Never do it when you have two Yellow Labs puppies in the house.
And here our pups, happy to see the studio-in-progress and looking for a trouble:
Then, they found a few watercolor boards and had fun:
And then they went to sleep.. peacefully:
I couldn’t be mad, they look so cute, don’t they!! :0)
