Ad for Washington Boxer Rescue

A new friend gave me space in the Washington Boxer Rescue fundraising calendar and I spent a couple of hours this week designing a 12" x 2" ad. These are the two finalists. I asked for feedback from my Facebook people as to which color they liked as a background and got about 50% of folks liking the red and 50% liking the purple. 

I gave my new friend the choice.  We'll see what color the ad will end up and on what color of paper.

I am about ready to begin two more commissions.  But I am also painting a couple of portraits for fun: one is my sister's cat, and the other is a cute dog of another Facebook fan that had the happiest expression I'd seen in a long time. 

I am also painting some spirit animals...Currently, I am thinking about a series with attributes woven into the paintings.   Currently, I have plans for a coyote (my major power animal, according to Faye the Tattoed Psychic), a deer, and a crow.  I've got the coyote ready to paint. 

As always, you can see more of my paintings, by going to
