I'm dog-sitting for the weekend for my daughter and son-in-law's Great Dane named Oliver.  My dog Cally and I "herd" Ollie on a walk by the lake near my daughter's house.  It's a lovely place and I've taken to sketching some scenes from photos I snap while we walk on the round the lake trail, hitting roots and rocks and ups and downs but some mighty beautiful scenes.   Here are 3 sketches done with Caran D'Ache and water.
The group, NewHAT, that I painted with this summer has a show in Hopkinton at the Art Center and it's up until November 18th.   Here's the postcard:

I'm now sharing studio space at the Vernon St. Studios in Somerville, MA.  It's very exciting to have a large well-lit space to work in--just have to stop taking these dog-sitting gigs!   And they are having open studios Dec 6&7 12-6 so my studio-mate and friend Martha Slocum will be there and would love to have visitors. We're at building 6 studio #44.  I'll have some new prints and some older paintings and prints.  Here's the postcard for that as well as for the Somerville Museum show which I have a print in.
