wanna play wanna play

24 Apr

This is a painting of our doggie.  Sadie is a highly spirited border collie lab cross and is always looking for someone to play with or for someone to pay attention to her.  She is very expressive and communicates with us quite clearly – Almost always about attention and/or food or food and/or attention!

She is getting on in years now.  We think she is about eleven – not sure as she was a resuce dog.  Her hair is turning quite white and she has started to slow down some.

This is a mixed watermedia painting on Ampersand Aquabord.  This surface is wonderful for painting textures such as fur and hair.

    Helen, thank you for your supportive comment on my Late Bloomer blog. Comments are like gold lately! I was tickled to find your blog – such beautiful paintings you are creating. I remember traveling to New Brunswick with my husband, must be twenty years ago now. Such beautiful landscape there, heaven, really. I rarely paint pets – but you have captured real personality with your painting of Sadie. She looks kind to me. Are dogs kind?
