New site....

So I helped Corrine make a new website for herself yesterday, and got the bug to update mine as well. I like what I've done so far and it's live now, but it will take a bit of tweaking to get it right and of course used to the new layout, and editing of it.

This is the link to Dogs By Bri, which also has a new blog format. I'm very curious to hear what people think, positive or negative. I really want the site to be easy to use and have the same feeling you get from viewing my paintings.

Thanks for your time if you do end up e-mailing or commenting on it.

New Start...

untitled for now
10"x20" acrylic on canvas

I don't have a title yet for this one, but something like "Just Off to the Side" seems appropriate. I'll sit with it a little while and see.

The tones are coming together and I like where it's taking me. I've been able to use a wide range of colors so far, and that always makes it creatively satisfying.

I'm hoping I get a little work done today, and know that Saturday and Sunday at Short Term Gallery will lead to lots of progress.

Shadow detail...

"Form Strategic Partnerships"
(in progress)
18"x36" acrylic on canvas
$4500 US dollars plus shipping

I spent the past two days working on the shadow detail under the construction awnings in the painting. I love the way it's turning out but I also think it's just about the most boring part of the painting to be working on.

The light quality is getting better each time I work on it, but I'm chomping at the bit to start painting the light and reflections in the street. Maybe I'll get to do some of that tomorrow.
