So Here are the last pictures that Sue has painted. I think we are going to offer a few for sale in the local art shop as we are now getting short of walls to hang them on !!!!. This first one is the very latest just finished last week. It is the biggest yet, at around 36" by 24". All the photo's here were taken outside but they still do have the odd shadow or reflection.
Do click on any picture to enlarge it.
The one below is quite small at around 14" by 9" and was completed (Varnished) a fortnight ago.
This one is around 24" x 18" and Sue finished it in early October.
The next few are one's I had forgotten about they hang in the hall and the one below is of "Blaze" who was a really hugh family dog, he was a cross Alsatian (German Shepherd) and Pyrenean mountain dog, he stood nearly 6ft tall when standing on his rear legs. This picture was painted about 15 years ago. Its 15" x 12"and framed, these are not going to be for sale.
This Doberman is around 12 years old now and is 15" x 12", this was painted especially for some one who sadly moved abroad before it was finished.
Below "Blaze" again, this time just a facial close up. Sue painted it straight after the full body picture of him, 18" X 12".
Below this "Lion" was painted at around the same time, Sue was never really happy with it so it has stayed in a cupboard upstairs for years. Its quite a large one at 24" x 18".
Now you are completely up to date. Currently Sue is working on three more, when she gets fed up she goes to another then comes back to original later.One is three small Tiger cubs, one is Dolphins and the third is a Landscape of a dartmoor River bridge.
Joke of the day.
This one borrowed from my Australian friend Merle.

A woman walked into the kitchen to find her husband stalking around, "What are you doing?" she asked.
"Hunting flies," "Oh, Killing any?" she asked.
"Yep, 3 males and 2 females," he replied.
"How the hell can you tell them apart?"
He responded, "Easy 3 were on a beer can and 2 were on the phone."

Absolutely gorgeous, that's all I can say!
Does she do these paintings from photographs?

Hi, Sue thanks you all for your kind comments.
To answer your question Shammy, yes most of the time she does but in the case of the Dog ones and a few more she used several pictures for colouration, markings etc then composes then paints her own.

Hey Bob, when I read your blog these days, I get Ken to come in and have a look too. It's the only one he will look at! We are both in awe of Sue's paintings - she is a very talented lady. Don't suppose she would like to sell one of them overseas? We would love to hang the tiger on one of our walls.

Hi,If anybody is coming back to this post we are thinking along the lines of perhaps getting a few of these pictures made into prints, these would be easier to post and of course much cheaper. Its just a matter of production cost and of course demand.
Thank you Gina and Ken for the compliments on the blog and to All of you on Sue's painting.
