Prancing - Complete

12 x 36 oil on canvas

I have struggled with this one - a little larger than I normally do.  A friend suggested I change the background to black to make the dog pop a little more.  The glare through the window makes it look blue gray but it is basically black and the dog is actually a warmer tone than the camera snapped.  My husband says this is a pit bull but I thought it was a terrier.

15 x 30

Blocked this one in yesterday!  I liked the vantage point on dog with tail up in the air--need to find out what kind of dog this is?????  Maybe a terrier of some type...  I wanted to try a larger vertical painting and I thought this angle on the dog would lend itself to that.  I have much, much more to do on it while striving to stay loose.

Crowing About

12 x 24
oil on stretched canvas

They call a flock of crows a murder of crows - I thought about using that in the title but just didn't like the sound of that.  I wonder why they call them a murder of crows????
