I love the soft light that's falling on this gentle dog's head. And how the shape of the piece mirrors his profile. It's a quiet and contemplative painting.
Sort of the exact opposite of the kind of day I had, packing up and getting ready to head to the AKC/Eukanaba National Championships tomorrow. I will not be posting any paintings until next Tuesday due to the trip, but if time allows, I may pop in and give you an update. Let you know how my poster unveiling goes, and show you some of the imagery that will be inspiring future dog-a-day paintings.
For those of you in the Long Beach, California area, I will be at the AKC booth from 10-2 on Saturday and Sunday. I would love to meet you!
Don't forget, too, that next week is Animal Welfare Week (formerly called Shelter & Rescue Week), where I'll be profiling adoptable animals from the Oakland Pet Adoption Center in Auburn Hills, Michigan. Proceeds from the sale of these paintings (and all of them will be available to the first buyer) will be donated to the Oakland Pet Fund, an organization who's mission is to make Oakland County euthanasia-free by 2010.
Looking forward to painting again (it will be odd to be away from my brushes for 4 straight days - I have not packed any art supplies whatsoever!), but in the meanwhile, enjoy your weekend, and I will talk to you soon,
Thanks, as always, for looking and sharing,
