My Day 4 painting is of Tinkerbell, an Old Boston Bulldog I met at the West Niagara Fair in Smithville while my youngest daughter was showing her goat for 4-H. Between a busy week of family activities, with goat showing, rabbit showing, etc., plus being blessed with an abundant crop of vegetables needing to be harvested and processed, I am behind in my daily painting. A garden related injury to my right index finger has made typing a bit of a challenge too, but at least I am left handed, so my painting hand is fine!

The good news is I have a lot of paintings started and took some great reference photos taken, so I’ll be working on catching up.

Day 4: “Tinkerbell”, oil on baltic birch, 8″x8″

Note: for the Challenge, I will ship within Canada & U.S. for free if you purchase a “30 Day Painting” during September, 2014, so if you live in Canada or the U.S., select “Pick Up” as the shipping option so you aren’t charged for shipping and add a note or complete my contact form on my website with your shipping address. Framing can be added so the painting is ready to hang, for an additional charge depending on frame.
