This is quite a departure from my normally more subtle colours. I'm really not sure how I feel about it. The whole point of doing small paintings is to experiment and explore. Working small takes less time to work out visual problems than painting a large canvas. I don't feel too bad about chucking something that I am not happy with if it is small.
I went to an art workshop at the Kentucky Horse Park last September given by the very accomplished equine artist Valerie Hinz. There were several competitions taking place that week, and this was a serene moment at the beginning of a busy day.
Finished this painting of Daisy April 25. She is the sweetest, tiniest little beagle with huge eyes and ears. Daisy was adopted at 2 years of age and has a wonderful home now. I wish all dogs were as well cared for as she is. Now I'm off to High Park to check out the cherry blossoms.
