Seems like everytime I get to feeling bored, something challenging pops into my life.....for instance, Duluth, Georgia had a fund raiser for the Duluth Historical Society. They asked for sponsors to purchase fiberglass dogs.....and asked artists to come forward and paint/embellish one. My sponsor was the Gwinnett Community Bank and they chose me and a BULLDOG! . They wanted 'red, gold & money' all over it. I had a great time working on 'Gold Bull-ion' ( or how about 'Credit-a-bull? ) Red, Gold and Money are some of my favorite things! He turned out dandy.....altho, I didn't care very much for the name the bank gave him.....'BUCK'.... how dull is that? Buck is charming and an be seen at the Duluth Arts Council in downtown Duluth, Ga.

I love to paint out doors......and feel the wind and hear the noises around me. This was painted on a dreary cold day in Georgia......so, what else could I do but put away all the gray paint and splat down all the bright and bold colors.......sigh......how fun is that?
