one more dog painting
Here is the other little dog painting I'm sending out to Wilde Meyer Gallery
for their annual Dog Days exhibit. See my post from last week if you are wondering "since when does she paint dogs?" This one is 10"x10", titled "Dog Park," oil on board.
Like all the other dog paintings, this one was fun to do. I have been wondering how these relate (or not) to my "serious" paintings. They seem so outside the flow of my main body of work, made in a more playful spirit...like doodles, done for the sheer pleasure of watching little images emerge.
Of course some of that spontaneity is always part of my process. But in the end most of my paintings hold so much more meaning for me than these do--a weighty and long term commitment...while the dogs are light and in the moment. Sometimes it's nice to have both things going I guess.
