Oil on Linen Board

My goal this month has been to paint at least one small painting a day. Azucar is based on some beautiful English china from the home of my world-traveler friends, Jennifer and Dave. I've been wanting to paint white and blue china since taking the Jean Chambers workshop a few years ago.

This was a fun exercise and reminds me of a great day visiting with Jennifer, who is the mom of one of my favorite foster pugs, Oscar, a spry 12 year old. On most days, Oscar supervises household activities and keeps all the humans on schedule from his favorite spot right next to the refrigerator.

Inspiration for Azucar

Oscar keeps a googley eye on all
important kitchen activities.

Rescued at the age of 11.
