Come, Boy!, 6x8 Inches, Oil Painting of Pug Dog At The Beach

SOLD
This was just 'one of those paintings'... one of those paintings that flowed off the brush.  I spent most of the day trying to force myself to paint things I knew I 'should' paint.  I whined about it on Facebook.  To my husband.  To my dog (see above).  Then I opened my photos that I took to Karin Jurick's workshop to perhaps paint.  And I spotted this photo of Paco.  He was so happy that day at the beach, such a clown, as Pugs are known to be.  I cropped the photo just 'so', and BAM.  I felt like I was sitting right with Karin, painting away, in the 'zone'.
I don't say this about every painting, but I just LOVE this one!

  8. Kelley this is so fabulous!! I thought it was a Winter scene at first, but it works as a beach scene too. That pop of turquoise blue at the top just sets the whole thing off. Awesome!!!

  9. Painted with a big heart and it shows! (Looks effortless, don't you love it when that happens?) I love it too: your brushwork here is sooooo expressive and the colors just SING!! Beautiful.

  11. What a great Pug painting! Love it! Hopefully one day I will pick up a brush and try my hand at painting. Doubt I'll ever be very good at it but I'm going to give it a shot.
