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.

  1. Amy, my heart is still filled with the wonderful energy of the mansion. Thanks again for joining us. It was a great week. I really enjoyed watching you produce so much great work! Your little dog is much cuter than this photo depicts.

  2. I love this dog painting...oh boy! So sweet and the colors are wonderful. Makes me want to try to paint my golden retriever. I don't think I could do even 1/4 as good as you though.

  3. Thank you so much for your positive, encouraging words. It means so much to me.
