Cooling Off

This is Marshall, one of the dogs that I walk. In the summer time (nice memories) the dogs often take a dip in the creek.

I struggled with this one, but  I'm happy with how it turned out.

  1. Cathy,
    Love this one- great painting with the movement of Marshall under the surface of the water. He looks happy! Great job-

  2. Awwww, his blissful face, and his undulating tail!
    love it!

  3. This is a wonderful portrayal. Great job!

  4. And you should be happy! Marshall looks happy also. Great job!

  5. This is great. You have given so much information without too much
    detail. Hard to do.

  6. I love this little guy. I also just painted a doggie in the water, and had lots of fun with it. I love the movement in your water.

  7. Catherine, you took on quite a challenge with this painting and it is wonderful. I love seeing dogs swim and this painting brings back memories for me as well.

  8. This is masterful! Just enough given and wonderful brush strokes.
