"You Owned My Heart (Lucy)," 6" x 8", pet portrait of a black lab mix, acrylic on canvasboard, $324. Inquiries may come to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Lucy's saga continues. Here is another portrait of the same dog that inspired yesterday's painting, but this one is a more literal likeness.
What makes this painting hum? The tension between the orange and blue - opposites on the color wheel, that, when placed alongside each other, amp up the others' presence. Experiment with opposites at home and see the great combinations you get - this can work with a centerpiece built of limes and eggplant as well as it can with paint.
Thanks, as always, for looking at and sharing my paintings with friends and family.
I'm looking forward to painting again for you tomorrow,
