I was painting (after a long non-painting spell) again and finished up one piece but still had paint out and was still in the mood to keep going.
12" x 12" oil on canvas
I'll be able to give this to my awesome cuz soon, since she's right near by in Napa.So I grabbed a photo I'd seen that morning on my cousin Shelley's Facebook page remembering her beautiful dog Ace and the high-contrast nature of it plus the sweetness of the occasion and the dog himself drew me right there. Here's the result. It was fun!
