new paintings

I have been experimenting with Open Acrylics, which are workable for a very long time like oils, but clean up with water and dry like acrylics. They are really nice to work with. The first painting is a portrait of a cocker spaniel named Gracie, and was painted as a gift for my friend and sister.

The second is a painting of Tiara walking in the deep snow. I'm not sure about this one - it is still a work in progress and may need a significant overhaul before I can consider it done.
