|Invitation for the show using one of my paintings|
What a fun show Macon Arts Alliance has put together for and about man's best friend, the dog! Featured artists include Lauren Bausch, Pat Burns, Allan Carey, Barry Gregg (Decatur), Milton Heard, Leslie Hoops-Wallace, Virginia Maxfield, Coni & Mark Merritt, Carol King Pope, and Anne Rafferty (Atlanta). Invited artists produced quite a variety of artworks including paintings in all mediums, whimsical ceramic statues and bowls, manipulated digital photography on canvas, a life-size plaster/concrete greyhound, prints and note cards.
|Still room to maneuver|
|"AC Pup" 12" x 12" acrylic on canvas|
A 10% donation to AC's spay/neuter program will be given for any pet commissions done as a result of my connection with AC Pup. Just mention his name to me.
|"HighClass HotDogs" 16"x40" acrylic on canvas|
|Nelson with me and his "showgirls", Whitney and Dharma|
|"Tadpole" 12" x 12" acrylic on canvas|
|"ize iGnoring da kitteth" 11"x 14" acrylic on canvas|
Golden Bough Bookstore. She has her very own Facebook page. China was the official doggie greeter Friday night. I was amazed at how well-behaved and social these dogs were together. In this painting she is obviously enjoying ignoring her friend, Rocket. I just had to sneak a cat into the show!
|"Babysitting" 18" x 24" acrylic on canvas|
|"Hold'em, Sadie" 16" x 20" acrylic on canvas|
Our chocolate border collie, Sadie, was trained on cows and later tried very hard to herd our many cats. Here, by the miracle of paint, I was able to give her some sheep.
|"Trixie" 18" x 24" acrylic on canvas|
I saved my favorite for last. Trixie is a very lucky adopted pit bull mix that belongs to my painting buddy, Eleanor. She knows she is loved. Her coat in sunshine glows with some of my favorite colors, expressed in this painting.
Macon Arts has prints and note cards of some of my other paintings, including dogs and cats. So... these were my entries into the show, but you will want to go see the fabulous artwork of the other artists as well. Here are a few random photos taken at the show, which by no means show all that was there.
