I have been painting a lot purely from my paintings, no reference in front of me. And a shape that keeps presenting itself is dogs. You probably can't tell but there are five dogs in these three paintings.
I think maybe I like the challenge of painting a dog that isn't cute, that holds the complexity of relationship you can really have with them -- and trying to get that right. The painting on the wall isn't working and is about to be completely changed, I feel the urge to cover coming on but this post is a little homage to my girl. She's especially on my mind today as we found out she has a torn acl and needs about a billion dollars worth of surgery. Dog paintings with a cone head here we come? I hope not.
