new paintings, different style, similar subject matter

My friend Laura's birthday is today, so I decided to paint her dogs and give them to her as a present.

She has a long-haired dachshund named Petra and a basset hound named Ginger... if you have my FB, I have pics of them on there. She commented on my t-shirt logo that I did last month (see post from May 12) that she wanted cartoon versions of her dogs, so I painted them! I was originally going to do one of per dogs in the same style as I did with my pets, but this style was easier and less time consuming (and more fun!).

I had to buy the cheap acrylics, which meant that I had to paint 2 coats of each color, which sucked. But I had to go cheap because one friggin tube of the stuff is $5! And they don't come in small tubes. Boo.

I picked up my ol' sketchbook and finally finished the drawing of Rhianna that I said I as working on (from this time last year). Well, it's not technically finished, but in my terms, it is. I need more practice and patience. It's hard to work on something that doesn't NEED to be done while in the back of your mind you have plenty more important things you should be doing. Ah, such is the life of a procrastinator.

Just got a new "toy" in the mail today. And it was FREE! Last week, Moo.com gave away coupon codes for free mini card cases (just had to pay shipping)! I got a hot pink one. And it is pretty hot! ...and shipping was lightning fast! I ordered it on Friday and just got it today (monday)!

I also have some photos to post. Maybe I should just post them on my flickr account. Just some flower photos from my yard...
