Sweet Doggy Contemporary Dog Portraits by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

Obviously I enjoy painting dogs!!! Just returned from a painting retreat at a beautiful home named Mutt Mansion so I guess it's fitting. Coming home was great, but family life with two teenagers definitely puts a crimp in my painting productivity from last week. Today was taken up with household duties, errands, dog walking, school basketball game, photographing the cheerleaders, on to ballet class, and finally home! No painting again today, this one is from my time at Mutt Mansion. 8"x10", $150 To purchase please contact me at amy.whitehouse@me.com

Garlic in Blue Contemporary Still Life and White Puppy Dog Paintings by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

The painting retreat on the coast of Maine, Freeport area, was magnificent. Mutt Mansion is simply a glorious spacious home on the water with views from every room. The light changed constantly, the tide went in and out, there was rain with its comforting pitter patter, snow to lightly coat the ground, sunshine to glitter the bay. It is always good to get home, and this was no exception; unpacked several paintings with more being mailed to me. 9 dog portraits! I guess Mutt Mansion is the place. This one is 8"x10" acrylic, $150; the "Garlic in Blue" is 3.5"x5" Acrylic on watercolor paper, $40. Thanks for stopping by today.

Love Joy Peace Mixed Media Painting
