It is Day Five of January, 2018 and also Day 5 of acrylic painting.
Some of these are terrible! None of them are finished. Some may never be finished, but that’s ok. Really!
Jan 1. I started this first one on a background I did back in August. Which is just the most recent time (before this one!) that I decided i was really going to do painting for reals.
Jan 2. Started this one today with the left image completed. Also from last August! Anyway, I worked on it for a couple hours and ended up with the slightly fluffier, still far from complete, right side image.
Jan 3. 16″ x 20″ is big! Though I’d like to do bigger. This one started with the blue background previously completed, you’ll never guess when! Last August.
Jan 4. Terrible! Holy cow. I think the nose has some promise but otherwise pretty bad. Started this one on a white canvas. Painted a quick blue ground. Might try to rescue or might paint over. Going to need lots of canvas, after all.
Jan 5. Not too thrilled with this one either, after 3ish hours. We’ll have to see if I give this one another go. Either way, I think tomorrow it’s back to dogs. The fifth day was rough. My brain was telling me I could take a day off. But no. Nooooooo. Not giving up today. :)
Thanks so much for stopping in! If you leave a comment include your site so I can visit back.
Hello to Paint Party Friday!
Your paintings are great, I love seeing the progress shots, too. Good to see you around again! Happy PPF, hugs, Valerie
Lovely work, The dogs go well for the Chinese Year of the Dog 2018
Happy New Year
those pets are amazing, colorful, fun and great
Oh my- I especially love the dogs!! Really, they are all good- and you put such expression and soul into the animals eyes. I love that. Rid yourself of the negative thoughts-and keep on painting these. Happy PPF and a happy New Year too!

Ha, fun illustrations. I like the colors and perspective on the horse illustration.
You are too hard on yourself. NONE of these are terrible. They are all amazing.
I thought they are all amazing! As a lifelong dog nose smoocher, I think you’ve expertly captured the smoochability of the noses very well!
Oh no, these are not terrible – they are wonderful! Such great expressions!
Hallo Cindy! Thanks for visiting my poor comatose blog, and Happy New Year to you!
I have been looking over your recent works … decorated shoes, dog portraits and more – I love how you’re branching out and doing new stuff, especially those dog drawings, and trying acrylics. Have you seen Sally Muir’s Dog A Day project? You’d like it.
I am doing a little exhibition at the local library in February, so I shall post some artworks on the blog soon (once every six months is all I seem capable of right now). Cheers and keep on creating in 2018!
Fantastic to see your work in progress shots. I love to see other artists, but I’m so timid when it comes to showing my own. Hopefully I’ll get over this soon :D
