This is my contribution for the annual Dog Days exhibit at Wilde Meyer Gallery
in Scottsdale AZ. Titled Dogs Remembered
, it's 12" square, and follows in spirit with many white paintings I've been working on this summer. (Due to their subtlety, all of the white ones hard to photograph...you can get a better view by clicking on the painting.)
Wilde Meyer's request for a dog painting (an option open to all the gallery artists) is my annual reminder to keep my options open when it comes to subject matter. The first time I was asked to do this, I thought in a slight huff, "But I don't DO dog paintings!" But some little voice told me to try it, if only to be a good sport, and it has now become something I look forward to. I've done quite a few at this point, for the gallery and also to donate to the annual Humane Association fundraiser auction in our area.
