"Rainbow Golden," 6" square, Golden Retriever portrait in acrylic on canvasboard, $249. Inquiries may always come to me.
I scanned this painting, so should have gotten a true capture of it's likeness, yet it looks a little yellow and saturated in the background to me. It didn't at first, but against the background here it's starting to look a little acid-ey yellow. In reality, the painting is rich with goldens and browns, and the face gently emerges from the background. I'll have to play with it in Photoshop and see what I can come up with.
Meanwhile, I wanted to share with you a friend, a wonderfully talented graphite artist, who consistently delights, inspires and entertains. Sheona Hamilton-Grant has a distinctive voice that is matched only by her mad skills with sharpened pieces of wood. I invite you to take a minute to hang with her on her blog and enjoy her wit and art. If you say that I sent you, she'll be extra nice (as if anything else is even an option!!).
Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork with your friends and family.
