New Pug Painting ~ Winking Pug Puppy ~ A77

Happy Monday everyone!
I am so excited to show you the new Winking Pug Puppy painting I just finished!

It is my second pug painting of 2011, and it was inspired by the smiles that Archie brings us everyday! 🙂

I was having so much fun painting that I forgot to pull out my camera until I was almost done painting this little guy!

Here he is just before I added the finishing lines and shading…

But… If you would like to see how I create my paintings from start to finish, I have documented the process for you to enjoy.

Tee Hee!




He is so happy to meet all of you!




He is officially pug design A77, now available on my website on all of my products where you can choose the design.




Please feel free to contact Archie amd me anytime with any questions. 🙂

Have a super day everyone!

New Pug Painting ~ A76

Hi everyone!
I am so excited to show you the little fawn pug I painted today.
He is the first painting of 2011, and I really love his expression!
It is so exhilarating when the energy to paint comes over me.
I cannot paint everyday and in fact, it has been over a year since I have created a painting.
I have documented how I create my paintings for you on my website.
It always feels like magic to me.
I go into a wonderful quiet place where I hear the birds chirping and when I look up, a new little face is staring back at me from my art table!
He is now officially Pug A76 on my website and can be put on any of my products that you can choose the design.
Archie seems to like him.
He just brought in a rock and dropped it next to my art table!
I think he has made a new friend!
Have a super day everyone!
