I was drawn to the water in this image and the simplicity of the shapes, their almost surreal appearance.

I’ve been very remiss lately, not posting much this month.   Still painting more than ever, but life keeps interfering, pulling me into mundane matters that need to be taken care of.

My sister asked me to do this painting.   I think I have done a painting for every one of her dogs.   People often give me very sentimental, but poor quality photos of their pets.   This is the way she remembers her dog, it’s a meaningful image to her.   When I know the pet I can fill in the blanks and put personality into the painting; when I don’t know them it’s more difficult to do this.
