"Sammy" oil on board 9 x 12"

My dog. Everyone mistakes him for a Basengi or a Corgi, but he is a Mountain  Feist, a type of squirrel hunting dog bred in the Appalachian  Mountains. This is another painting that I took time out just to do for myself.

"Feeding the Gulls", oil on board 11 x 14"

I saw these three boys feeding sea gulls while walking my dog in the park one day. I started the painting and then lost interest in it for some reason, maybe I thought it was a little too sentimental or something. It sat around for  months and then I pulled it out and started working on it again. I quite like it now.
