"Seiko" 8" x 10" oil/linen

I'm back after taking a short break from it all after a grueling two months of shows, workshops and commissions. The next month will be spent painting for my galleries with the intent of getting new work to each gallery. The painting above is for a charity fund raiser being held this weekend at Southwest Gallery. The event will raise money for the Greyhound Adoption League of Texas. GALT finds adoptive homes for retired and lost greyhounds. The gallery asked me to do something for the event, so me and several other artists have donated works of art to be raffled off. The event is this coming Saturday night from 6-9 pm at Southwest Gallery. To view the art catalog go to

I named the painting "Seiko" because greyhounds are bred for running like finely tuned watches. I don't paint many animals and do not do dog portraits, so this was a nice exercise that put me outside my box.
Feels good to be back blogging again.

Wonderful painting Rusty! I love your brushwork and the loose edges.
