"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.
