Northern Fire

Splashing about with my acrylic dyes. The picture, a nod to my love affair with all things Northern...

Goodbye to a cherished friend...

We had to make the sad trip to the vet last night and say goodbye to our little dog Cheeky. She was an octogenarian in dog years, the past 6-8 months had seen a steady decline, everything in her body was failing her, doggie dementia had set in... it was excruciating to see her that way - and excruciating to say goodbye.

We miss her.

The dog was created especially for children. He is the god of frolic." ~ Henry Ward Beecher

Geometric Abstract

This was a fun mixed media to create, very punched up colors in real life giving it a 3-D effect. Tissue on canvas set up with multi layers of gel medium gave it a unique textured look.

The picture was straight, it is my photography that isn't ... ;-)
