Dancing Fox and Owl Painting

Yup, you knew the time was near, a dancing fox and owl, big surprise. The really big surprise of this 8x10 on canvas now for sale in my etsy shop AHEM is the color scheme. Observe the odd pairing of Burnt Orange and Eggplant Purple lightly joisting (or rather dancing as in this case) on a bed of fresh Parisian Green, garnished with a dollop of Mint and a smattering of a warm and fluffy Peach Sorbet and you have the makings for a totally new color combo. Feel free to ogle in wonder.

magic wand

i found this magic wand today, at the beach. i'm not sure what kind of powers it has but it's a really awful shade of beigey-pink. I wonder what that means. It looks multifunctional.

I live near an old amusement park that closes after Labor Day. An empty amusement park is a sort of bittersweet and beautiful thing. No more loud happy noises or mad shrieking, no more aromas of fried sugar waffles and french fries...just the rides, abandoned but still colorful and charming. The park I live near is called Sea Breeze but it used to be called Dreamland, which is what I named this painting.

20x26" acrylic on masonite.

This is my Bubs Wubbles, otherwise known as Henwy....part Shar Pei, part Irish Terrier, Henwy comes from a broken Amish family from the dark backwoods of rural Pennsylvania. Rumor has it his kid brother was trampled by one of the cows there by mistake. Yep, life was hard back then. Henwy was three months old and beginning to starve to death when a kindly soul stepped in and got him and his remaining brothers out of there. Shortly after he came to live with me. He was small but already looked like an old man. One of my friends wanted to call him Benjamin Button, but my sister suggested Henry and it stuck, sort of, ya see, Henry is abnormally small for his age. His poor upbringing has stunted his growth and his Shar Pei features keep him looking quite youthful (well..he's only about 14 months as we speak) but...he's my little forever puppy. He's got a bad heart and some other tough issues but I gotta tell ya, this little guy is so full of life and personality and charm. And when he 'talks', he talks wike dis...whatrya gonna do?
