Go, Ebony!!,12x12 Inch Original Oil Painting by Kelley MacDonald

THANK you everyone for your wonderful response to yesterday's painting!  This is #2 in the series of 3 paintings.  I'll include a video below of an actual jump - video taken by my friend Sally's with her PHONE :D.

There's just something about these retrievers.  They love having this task, and doing so well at it.  They truly reacted to the cheers of the crowd, and I can only imagine how great it felt to swim on that warm day!  This painting, as well, is at the Art Stable Gallery, 865 Main Road, Westport, MA.

I'm trying to keep them nice and loose, and about the movement and the 'doggieness' of them.  Have fun watching the video!


  1. Love love love this series!!! The water is perfect as is the bits of puppy we can see under water. Brilliant idea for a series!!!

  2. Another lovely painting! I enjoyed the video, the dogs certainly look like they love this "game" :)

  3. These paintings of the dogs in the pool are great. I'm a huge fan of the way you describe the effects of the water. I can't wait to see the third.

  4. Une très jolie peinture... Un magnifique travail de l'eau.

    3 de mes 4 enfants ont des labradors. Ils sont vraiment adorables.
    2 vivent au bord de l'océan et sont heureux...

    Je risque parfois de m'absenter durant cette période estivale. Je dois partir pour mes diverses expositions dans le sud de la France... Mais je serai présente régulièrement dès la mi-septembre.

    Gros bisous.

  5. I am just awed by your pool water, Kelley. Such an amazing job and I am loving this series. Enjoyed seeing the video too and wish I could see it live and in action.

  6. what a fun find that was! The paintings of swimming dogs are so great Kelley.

  7. Great subject and great job capturing the water and movement, both not easy to accomplish.

  8. Good way to start my day seeing your colorful painting and watching the fun video. Thanks for sharing it.

  9. The blue of the water and the blue black of the dog is so amazing. Enjoyed #1 and can't wait to see # 3.

  10. What a great series! I love these! You sure captured the joy and excitement of the moment!

  11. You earned the word "splendorious"! Because it is!
