A Salty Dog, Original Acrylic Painting by Kelley MacDonald


This lucky dog was heading out (and the fact that I have to explain that they were heading by some HUGE boats says I should maybe have done something differently in the painting) for a fun day on the water with it's people. A friend of mine had a wonderful yellow lab (now gone) named 'Salty', and she was just the BEST - so this is dedicated to her. Paco... do not be jealous.. you have a wonderful life!

Every day I'm getting ready for the Open Studio - today I actually painted a biggish painting of hollyhocks for the Bargain Table! I'm getting CRAZY!

Pin It


  1. You're not crazy Kelley - it's a sugar meltdown.

    Much success with your Open Studio!

  2. Thanks Kelley! That brings back many memories of our Salty Dog perched on the bow of the boat. Tell Paco he would have liked her! Good luck with your Open Studio this weekend!

  3. Beautifully done. The dog is perfect and you caught the feeling of bright sun and wind.

  4. Terrific light in this...I can feel the sunshine. Nice work!
