New Water Artworks

Continuing with my water and Labrador Retriever themed works this past week, I created these new watercolor and gouache artworks on paper.
These works are framed with handcrafted frames made from salvaged driftwood collected from the salt marshes of South Carolina by artisan/craftsman Jim Lavalley from Charleston, South Carolina. His reclaimed wood company makes frames from anything from  antique pianos to salvaging washed up boats. You can find his work here on his “Old Like New” etsy shop.

The weathered frames are a perfect compliment to my water dog works. They will be on display soon locally. More information to follow.

*Thank you to Erin Furman and Katie Dinning for providing refererence photos for these new works.

1000 Dog Portraits

1000 Dog PortraitsI honestly had long forgotten submissions that I made a year ago answering a call out to dog artists to be considered for a book on modern dog portraiture.
Hadn’t given it another thought about it again until I got some good news yesterday!
Six of my Labrador Retriever paintings are included Rockport Publishers’ new book 1,000 Dog Portraits by Robynne Raye!

1,000 Dog Portraits showcases a compilation of quirky, fun, fanatical illustrations, paintings, and drawings from artists around the globe.

I am thrilled to be included and I can’t wait to get my hands on my copy.
The book is available for pre-order if you are a collector of dog related books like I am.
