Tenderness, 6x6 Inch Oil Painting of Pugs by Kelley Macdonald

"Tenderness", #2 in 30 Pugs in 30 Days

Here we are!  Day #2 of Leslie Saeta's Challenge: 30 Paintings in 30 Days! I don't know what 'gets' me more in this image - the mom nuzzling the baby, or that little round headed baby!  Here we are on Day #2, with high hopes and a lot of enthusiasm.

I like working in a series.  I go through a pretty predictable routine.  I'm thrilled, all excited about the new painting... I go go go along, and ... whoops... I notice something I don't like.  Maybe it's the drawing (I can always use drawing practice), or the values are off.. then I panic.  How can I finish?  Should I wipe it off?  Try to save it?  And then, whatever I do, wipe or save, it starts to feel good again, and I'm getting that Ah-Ha feeling.  

One thing:  if you've ever seen a pug puppy you know:  wear emotional armor.  They are pretty irresistible.  There's a lot of great things about pugs, but believe this:  THEY do not accept that they are dogs.  They LIKE dogs... but they are small, furry people.

If interested in this painting, email me at kcareymac@hotmail.com.  First person to ask for a Paypal Invoice will get it.  :)  $100 & $10 S&H
