When you really really want to post an outtake from a pet portrait commission photo shoot, because the subject is So Incredibly Adorable, but you have to keep your trap shut for now because it's a Christmas present. Secrets are hard to keep, and happy secrets are even harder.

So instead, here's Gene, our favorite Boston Terrier, from a 2016 portrait shoot for +Patrick Saunders. He looks super serious here, maybe even a tad annoyed, because we were making him do dumb stuff like sit still, but if you could only see the little bouncy thing he does when he's happy to see you, it would melt your heart.

Artist friends, just a reminder that I’m teaching a floral painting workshop next January in Rockport, Texas sponsored by the +Rockport Center for the Arts.

Average daily temperatures in this part of Texas are in the mid-60s in January. Escape the cold and come to the Texas Coast to paint with me.

Register now to secure your spot:
http://bit.ly/Patrick-Saunders-Rockport-Floral-Workshop

I know I'm like a broken record on this, but it's true: whether you are a beginner or more advanced, florals are a perfect subject for adding energy to all of your paintings.

Learn about choosing a subject, composition, values, color temperature, simplification, how to start and when to stop. Each day of my January 15th - 17th workshop will include a full demonstration, followed by opportunities to create multiple paintings with frequent one-on-one instruction.

For #tbt, here's a painting I did in 2008 while we were living in Park Slope.

I was fascinated by the Unisphere, a 12-story high, stainless steel representation of the Earth, built in Queens, New York for the 1964 World's Fair. I decided to paint it in an early morning scene, which added a tremendous amount of depth as the sun rose and lit it from one direction.

We kept this painting for a long time in our personal collection. It represented a great memory of our time in New York.

"Corona Park" (oil on board, 19"x29"), now available for purchase at my online art gallery: http://bit.ly/Patrick-Saunders-Online-Art-Gallery

One of my favorite jobs in helping to run +Patrick Saunders world is documenting his painting workshops.

I love watching the change that takes place, every single time. Art is personal, so there's often anxiety at first, even fear, especially among those who have never painted before, or who haven't painted for long.

But by the end of the workshop, the entire group is relaxed, laughing, and having fun. They can talk about their work openly and honestly, with Patrick and each other. They learn a lot, and I've seen artistic breakthroughs so emotionally overwhelming that tears flow.

All of this is due to Patrick. Yes, I know I'm biased, but I've seen it with my own eyes over and over again. Patrick is not only a talented artist, he's a great teacher as well. They are actually two very different skill sets, and one doesn't necessarily guarantee the other. Patrick creates a teaching environment where people can feel at ease. It’s a great way to learn. He doesn’t consider fear or intimidation to be teaching tools, and you won’t be so bored watching his demos that you fight falling asleep.

Come join Patrick at a workshop near you. He promises to make it fun and inspiring, and I promise you that you have nothing to fear, and you’ll never be bored. - Kimberly

For #throwbackthursday, here’s a portrait commission from five years ago. I remember struggling with the competing patterns of the dress, the bricks and the stonework, but working with the dogs made it all fun.

"Deanna" (oil on canvas, 36"x26").

Reference and painting photos by +Saunders Fine Arts.
