This one is a watercolor of a friend's French bulldogs asleep while he waitd for a haircut in a barbershop.

Another watercolor (what I do), this is my dad out to haul--we live in Maine, SHOCKING SURPRISE!, and this is him at work on his boat.

This is another oldie, a boy and his aged viszla; those dogs are normally a golden reddish color but when they age, they turn white in the face. this dog was very, very old when this was done.

hi teresa!

I love your pieces and thanks much for posting them!

I'm a dog trainer so I was indeed drawn <ok - that wasn't intentional but it worksSmile > to the scenes of the adorable Frenchies and the warm Viszla and child pic.

I really like how you captured your dad on his boat and how you got the lighting and contrast of his clothing and the water and eveything.
That's really a neat scene of him and makes me curious about him.

In high school I probably did best with watercolors and I've always done loads of drawings of dogs and horses...as a young kid I'd sit for hours and just draw those subjects.

Hello everyone, I am new to this forum. I am a 41 year old male from NY who has Dyscalculia, something I hadn't learned about until just this year. I really hope I can make some new friends on here who can share simular experiences with me, as I have a great deal to learn about my learning Disability.

I'm taking 'Advanced Clay, hand building' in college. Just wanted to show you my most recent clay sculpture. I finished it last night. It still needs to dry out and be fired before I can glaze and re-fire it. Hope it doesn't fall apart before I can finish it. Clay is tempramental that way. - jus'

Moving out away from the iris sculpture,... it's 32 inches high, but will shrink about 10% before bisque. Then it will shrink another 2% during bisque. And another one or two percent in the high fire. The clay is stoneware. - jus'

Our clay sculptures came out of the 'high fire' today. Here's a close-up of my large sculpture 'irises and wisteria'. I'd painted the leaves 'green', but I think the fire got a little too hot, turning the leaves red. Mostly, I'm just glad that it's still standing up and in one piece. - jus'

Wow, there is a lot of amazing work on here!

Hope no one minds me sharing some of my own work :P
Here is an unfinished sketched of Loki the God of Mischief. I've always loved his character because he is just so crazy! I was inspired by a photo I saw while browsing the web.
Sorry for the poor quality. I had to take it with my camera lol
