Sneak Peek Friday


Welcome to Sneak Peek Friday!  Very busy thinking about all the great ideas for selling my prints and paintings. 



This little old lady was rescued from the pound and was missing some teeth.  So yes, you are seeing her tongue which tended to hang out there.  Love her!




Here's my other guy.  I caught him listening to someone upstairs on the landing. 

I printed these watercolor portraits on watercolor paper and then backed them with some foamcore  to raise them a little.  The trick is beveling the edges.   Practice, practice, practice! 



And of course, I would like to mention my special guest for "Women Who Create Beautiful Things", Melissa Prell, of  Lissabeecreations.     I so enjoy getting to know really nice people, like Melissa.  So will you.  Please join me back here on Sunday for her interview.

Once again, I am linking up with Studio JRU and all of you lovely Sneak Peak Talents.

I love your puppy paintings. You do such an amazing job at capturing them. And of course I am a dog person thanks to my dog KOA! ♥ I love that you raised them a bit off the back. Gorgeous Diana!

Your place is really inspiring! I like the torn and raised look in the frames - so professional! Thanks for sharing your life and creativity so often - and I love the "sneak peek" at the Sunday feature, too!

I love the water color of the golden. I may have to commission you for a picture of my father's "canine companion" Nance. She is no longer with us but lives strong in our memories and hearts. I reaaly like the look of the beveled edge. The lifting of the painting seems to bring an even more lifelike quality! Blessings.
