SOLDThis 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!
Paco looks like he is having a ball. Love it!ReplyDelete
Kell! Love this one- Can just tell it flowed...a lot of energy and just all Paco! Love the cropping. Yay for you!!ReplyDelete
What a race Paco has going on here Kelley! Captured his personality too.ReplyDelete
I like it very much!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous palette, lovely composition, and perfect painting, Kelley!ReplyDelete
oh Paco- you really captured his barreling motion and spirit here! Heres to many more "flows" off the brush!ReplyDelete
This is a great painting..Love it ..he is SO cute and you have totally captured himReplyDelete
It's super, Kelley. Make you just want to reach out and pat him on the head.ReplyDelete
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!!!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
LOVE, love, love it! Such energy, enthusiasm, motion and downright fun - you have captured it all with your expressive brushwork and mastery of values. Wonderful, Kelley!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Tiverton is such a beautiful place!!! Did you know I was there earlier this year?
precious!! love the movement you captured!ReplyDelete
