Dog Toy Painting Series

I've started a series of still lives featuring my tiny six pound dog Carol's toys. I've been doing all the other paintings in a single color key, and thought I'd try for three on this one.

Mannequin Photo Shoot

Next time you're at the mall try this out, take a photo of a headless mannequin, then take a photo of your head under the same light and let photoshop fun take it from there. This weeks mannequin photo shoot special guest is my cousin Brian Maclean visiting from Michigan. We did this while the ladies shopped.

Take your own and send them to me and I'll post them.

Gentlemen, there is a rat amongst us.

The HR department said we should try to make the work environment more comfortale for everyone.

My cheese is in town for the weekend. Is there someone that can show it a good time in the city? Maybe take it to a movie, dinner, and maybe some dancing, but that's all!

It’s come to my attention that someone in this office has been accepting bribes.

Who’s turn was it to buy breakfast this morning?

Dog Toy Painting Series (Cat Toy)

I've started a series of still lives featuring my tiny six pound dog Carol's toys. This weeks painting is take two on a cat toy for some friends of mine. Their cat was a barn cat when they got it, they bought this toy to for the cat to sleep with as a sort of surrogate sibling in replacement of the ones it lived with in the barn. As the cat grew up it would carry this toy around by the scruff of the neck as if it was it's kitten. Most of the chewing was done by the cat, though the family dog helped finish off the face.

Dog Toy Painting Series

I've started a series of still lives featuring my tiny six pound dog Carol's toys. This week's was a bit of a failure. I struggled with this one all day, only to find once I finished it that I had accidentally painted it on a pastel canvas, which would explain all the trouble I had with the paint drying too quickly and reacting badly to the board. I'm gonna take another shot at this one next week as it was also my first commissioned piece. Oops.

this is a friends cat toy with a great chewed up face, and a very sweet story behind the toy.
