30 Brown (Earth) Dogs – Year of The Dog 2018

2018 is the Year of the Dog in the Chinese Lunar New Year. More specifically, it is the year of the “Earth” element Dog. As I mentioned last post, I have committed to Leslie Saeta’s 30 Day Challenge this February. My chosen theme is Brown Dogs. So for the entire month of February, I will post 1 small painting of a brown dog each day. Maybe some other work too. 😉

The reference pictures are from shelters, and for the most part, they have been adopted or rescued. If you would like to “adopt” one of my brown doggies, they will be $100 each, unframed, with $25 going back to the Shelter. Free Shipping for any Brown Dog paintings from the series. Inquiries may come to me – danaaldisstudio@gmail.com

I am also working on a set of Chinese Breed Dogs, which will be turned into a poster to celebrate the Year of the Dog. Stay tuned.

Can’t say I don’t keep myself busy.  Here’s to hoping my health and my energy stay up. There’s a nasty flu virus this year. It must be nasty when your Dad (General Practice Doc) and Mom (Microbiologist) insist I go get vaccinated.

If you are also doing the Leslie Saeta Challenge, please let me know! If you prefer just to see the paintings, please follow my Instagram – @DanaAldisStudio

Happy Painting!
