Pup Pop Art









Here's my latest portrait commission. I call it pup pop art. I used the Sumi-E Japanese watercolors again and was so impressed by the brightness of the hues.


I am running around like a headless chicken trying to get ready for Christmas. I tend to be sick of turkey after Thanksgiving so I am very pleased that an Italian friend is inviting me for Christmas Eve for the Feast of the Seven Fishes. It should be fun and fishy!


Do you celebrate on Christmas Eve like the Europeans or on Christmas Day? What do you like to eat? 
Linking up to Paint Party Friday!

  6. I love your pup pop art!! I would love to one time experience the seven fishes dinner. We don't do much for Christmas eve but Christmas day at my Mom's is filled with family, friends, ham, bbq, macaroni and potato salads, along with veggie trays, and cheese and cracker plates. If anyone has any room left there is a big platter of homemade cookies. And always leftovers :)
