My new gallery, Wilde Meyer
in Scottsdale, is putting together a group show called Dog Days Of Summer, and I was asked to contribute. My first thought was, oh they can't mean me
! But I do have a very quirky and adorable dog, Louie, and after some consideration I decided to give it a try. Though I sensed that Louie would provide inspiration, I was not at all sure of how to proceed. It's been a long time since I have ventured into any sort of realism, but some recognizable doggieness seemed to be called for. In the end I drew various views of Louie on one of my typical textured surfaces. And had a good time with it.
