A Painting for Brother


Here are some peeks of a painting I'm giving my brother for his birthday this weekend. He's been giving hints that he's the only one in the family who doesn't have an original. I didn't want to give him one of my girl paintings, so instead I focused on his two dog-children. This was so fun to paint and collage! It was out of the norm for me, and I've been needing to paint a bit out of the norm. Because my brother's totally smitten with his dogs, Jordan and Toby, I had to name this painting, Doghouse Kingdom. :)

What are you doing this weekend?
