New Water Artworks

Spin Cycle 12″x16″ watercolor framed to 24″x30″ driftwood frame

 

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.

2014 Molly Poole Watercolor Labrador Retriever Calendar Call for Reference Photos Contest

mollypoole_2014calendarcalloutpinintIt is hard to believe it is already time to start planning for my 2014 Labrador Retriever watercolor calendar. This will be the fourth year creating this calendar and the second year I am inviting folks to share their favorite Lab photos with me. I must get going on this project if I plan on having in ready in time!
Last year, I was met with such an overwhelming response and hope this year will be just as exciting seeing all the wonderful submissions.
Just like last year, I will be choosing 13 photos from the submissions and paint 13 watercolors to appear in 2014’s calendar.
Each year, a portion of the calendar sales go to support Lab Rescue Organization of my choosing. In keeping with the theme of  “Show Me Your Labs Coast to Coast”, I have chosen to support both Southern California Labrador Retriever Rescue and Save A Lab in 2014 with a percentage of the proceeds split between these two rescue groups.

The rules are pretty much the same with a few minor changes to ease the organization of email submissions.

To view and print contest information and guidelines

*Please only submit photos you have taken yourself, I cannot accept submissions of third party photographs, either amateur or professional.
