Before I venture on to the next art gallery and foist my work upon them, I’m told I must have an artist biography, written in the third person. Piece of cake! I think.
Snoring Dog Studio was born a long time ago. The year isn’t important. Stop asking! Her first painting project was …
Snoring Dog Studio first noticed an interest in painting while watching her mom paint her masterpiece, “Sunflowers.” What, Van Gogh painted that? You lie!!
Snoring Dog Studio came out of the womb holding onto a paintbrush. Metaphorically speaking. DUH!
Snoring Dog Studio chose watercolor as her medium after suffering a severe bout of hives when her hands came into contact with oil paints. Or, it was the fifth of vodka. I can’t remember.
Snoring Dog Studio paints watercolors, when she’s not practicing her first love: nude topiary.
Okay, this isn’t going that well. I’d rather have someone else write it for me.
This is, officially speaking, Watercolor Friday. I know I’ve missed a few. The last painting I posted was destroyed.
By me, as a matter of fact. I took it into the kitchen and washed all the paint and pencil off. That’s one of the reasons YUPO paper is so useful. Because of its slick surface, it can be re-used. I’m thinking of using it to paper one of the rooms in my house.
Sometimes a painting just isn’t successful. One of the learned skills of a better artist is the ability to recognize when you’ve reworked a painting all it can stand and, yet, it gets worse and worse. Nothing is improving it. Saying goodbye and starting over used to be very painful for me. I’m still speaking of painting here.
I started this painting last weekend.
Needs a Title
I’m liking it a lot. I don’t have a title for it, yet. How about you all suggesting one?
And while you’re at it … any of you Facebook peeps who can spare the time – could you please wander over to my Snoring Dog Studio Facebook page and “like” it? I’d like that.
Have a marvelous weekend!
