Big Dog Goes to TEXAS!

I just had several new pieces sent to Houston for a gallery exhibit that will run from December 8 thru January 7th - and as they say - everything is bigger in Texas. This little big guy, Ernie, is 48" x 48".

12 Dog Days of Christmas

I am sure we are all familiar with the twelve days of Christmas, but now there are 12 DOG days. We've had a little fun here at Burns Studio coming up with 12 ways for you to save, give and enjoy this holiday season - Burns style.

So, for the next 12 days starting today, Monday the 29th of November through December 14th* we are doing daily specials. You can see them all here in one convenient place, but you can only take advantage of each day's special for just 24 hours and then off they go.

Now sit back and sort through all the specials, find the one that's right for you - and - well, Happy Holidays to You from all of at Burns Studio!!!

Rufus ABC's

I am sure that by now, if you know me, you know Rufus - that handsome lil’ character shown above and also the inspiration for my painting and philanthropic career. Well now he is at the center [literally] of a new program I am announcing today. My sweet Rufus' image, that I painted as an original, will be printed on a blank canvas, and then I will paint on/around (in art vocabulary that’s called embellish) the rest of the canvas in a theme related to each specific letter of the alphabet. Get it? Rufus' ABC's!

This concept is a first for me! So, let me expand on the process... it is part limited edition and part original. The edition part of these pieces makes them more economical yet the original part allows you the opportunity to have a large (30 x 30) Burns piece on your wall that you can actually see all the brushstrokes and vividness associated with my hand-painted, signature style!

You can see black and white and a few color sketches of all the pieces here, now. Next you’ll see the rest of the color sketches going up as I complete them. And, finally we will post all the paintings as they are finished.

Please take a minute to check them out. I hope you enjoy the images, the titles - alliterations - and the images of my boy Rufus. I think they would make a great birthday, anniversary, mother's or father's day gift or be the perfect image for a baby or kid's room - pick "your" letter before it's gone!

Kids See Color As We All Should!

I want to give a shout out to the fifth grade class of Carolyn Fritz for their incredible dog paintings. Ms Fritz is an elementary school art teacher in the San Juan Unified School District which is in the Sacramento, CA area. She used my art as inspiration for her class to create these remarkable paintings. Your talent inspires me. Way to go kids!

Thank You,
