I've been in my homeland of New Zealand for the past week.  Next year, I'm teaching a painting holiday here with my artist friend, Joe Garcia, so my sister (also a painter) Joanne Hanson and I are here making arrangements for next year's fabulous New Zealand Painting Holiday.  If you'd like to learn more about this workshop (sorry folks, it's full - but you can be on the waiting list) or you'd like to read about the rough week Joanne and I have had here in New Zealand, then go to our blog,

Today, my old-time friend Lindsay Scott and her husband Brian McPhunn, took us out on their boat to  Beehive Island for a barbecue.   What a life!

"Good Boy"

This 6" x 6" oil on board is being shipped out today to the Walt Horton Fine Art Gallery.  The Walt Horton Gallery is a top notch gallery in Beaver Creek, Colorado - under the same roof as Paderewski Fine Art.  The painting is done on my favorite surface - Ampersand gessobord.

The image is slightly out of focus as I photographed it after it was framed - therefore the camera focuses on the frame which is slightly closer to the camera than the painting.
