a leisurely day brimming with art!

we had a full day in laguna beach on saturday, hitting up 3 art fairs chock-full of incredible and inspiring art and lively music! i ended up talking to so many artists this time about cameras, animals, other exhibits they were participating in and fun! i have to say my favorites pieces of art were from carol heiman-greene, ray brown, michael ward and michael r crook! i wish i were incredibly rich, i would have gone home with an arm load of art from these artists! darn kids need to eat tho...but boy it was tempting!!

fun in the summer sun!

Beach Buds  Kathryn Hansen  (c) 2013 41/2 x 71/4

above is the third drawing in my "dog days of summer" series. 

have some minor adjustments i still need to make to "prized stick" below...but that won't take too long, just a bit more noodling on the rear leg and water.

bringing up the rear  below is "catch me if you can."  #5 and still on the drawing board.

i promised diamond i would try and throw in a lion head soon as she is getting annoyed with all these dogs on my board lately! i told her to stop looking at so many grumpy cat posts on facebook...she just sulked off and hasn't slept with me since last week. what's an artist to do?!!

Summer fun

Fun in the Surf  Kathryn Hansen (c)2013 5x5

after our glorious day at the beach last week, i thought i would continue the fun by creating a 5 drawing series of beach dogs. "fun in the surf" is the first completed piece, with "the chase" just started yesterday afternoon. with the temps soaring so early in the summer, making it a bit too hot to go out and play, it's great fun to sit and relive our refreshing beach day!

The Chase
