Man & Best Friend

Years ago I made a vow never to do portraits – long story – but this commission was hard to resist. Especially with a photo of the subject taken by Seattle’s amazing photographer (not biased at all…just Mom), Aaron Leitz.
Once a week, in the early morning, I meet with my dear friend & colleague, Lynnette Sandbloom – painter, illustrator, writer, floormat artist & quilter, fabric designer – in her studio and we paint and write together for three hours of creative bliss. This morning seemed like a good time to get over the blank-canvas-fear and just go for it. So here I am fifteen minutes into The Zone. Actually, it only took one stroke of ultramarine blue to get me there. I’m always surprised by this. Every time.
