They have beautiful work so don't miss seeing it.
At this point I am to nominate... a whole bunch of bloggers to also recieve this award and I am so far behind so I may just do one at a time.
My first nominee is Kimberley Santini. http://paintingadogaday.blogspot.com It amazes me that first she is so prolific, her work is spectacular and she has young children and holds workshops for school kids in her "spare" time. (I'm hearing that song about bringing home the bacon and frying it up in a pan...".) So please see her work as well.
Thank you again...I'm proud to be amoung such fantastic people and artists!!

I recieved a Kindle for Christmas and my daughter gave me a gift certicate for books. I downloaded a great book, "The French Impressionists" by Camille Mauchau (Severin Faust, novelist, art critic) and it's totally enthralled me. The Impressionists used the colors of the prism, rainbow, so with this painting I was in that "place". I hope you enjoy it.
8" x 6" oil on Archival RayMar canvas board.

You can see an update on YouTube. I don't know....feel free to give me feedback. This morning I was gungho on the back ground but now I'm not sure. Tommorrow working on Lab details. Maybe that will bring the background out. And you thought this was an easy process. This piece you get to see the "uglies" and all. As in life...One should have a plan.! Well the three Labs were the plan with a dramatic background. I'[ve been know to have a piece done then totally change the background laying in different shades from dark to light. That could happen. Will I video tape it?? You bet.

I took this photo one night as the two Labs waited for Roger to come home. The shadows and light was fantastic and I wanted to recreate that image. I am pleased with the way it came out especially taking the scene around the corners.
This is painted in oil on 5 x 5 x 1.5" on stretched Canvas.

This is what I did this afternoon. I actually was painting to Lady Gaga but put the "Music" in the video instead. Hope you like it. The next installment of Labatar!!!
I so have to figure how to do this. LOL..I'm cutting the video into two pieces so I can load them on the blog. I may have to go to youtube for a longer session. Just a small session now explaining what I'm up to. I'll be working on this today and this afternoon concentrate on the nose so you can see that. Hope I'm speaking a little loader today..no music.maybe a humming fan. LOL.
PART I & II

First I'd like to say before you watch this that I have a really difficult time painting and talking. It's the can't chew gum and walk at the same time syndrome. Also, the next time I do a video, I'll shoot in a different direction so you see more than my hand!
I'm excited about this new venture. I get to bring you into my world of creation as you have invited my art to your home. In the following days I will show you the painting of Trooper. I may of course take some liberties and do alittle off camera so it won't be dragging as I prepare to do the nitty gritty so to speak. I hope you enjoy it. I also just realized I can only upload 100mgs. So I had to cut the "film" Labatar..the movie. So it';s starts later than I had planned.
Please feel free to comment...kindly..lol...Thanks, Sheila
Please go and see some wonderful items...one is my DoodleLab Bag and another of mine is a free portrait!!! It starts February 12 and runs through the 27th!! Don;t miss it and help save a Lab today!!

I bought myself a small video cam and have been having a ball!!! Every so often I'll put one on of me painting or..the Labs stealing things from the studio. Caught..in action!! Let me now how you like this new addition.
