#36 - Take a Bow

Take a Bow
6"x 6" oil on linen panel
#36

It may seem like I am all over the map as far as subject go.  You could be right!  But there is method to my madness.  I will be part of the Virginia Equine Artists Association booth at the Montpelier Hunt Races on Saturday, November 6.  For that booth I take, you guessed it, equine paintings!  But in addition to the horses, I am planning on taking some dog paintings also.  Small paintings, framed in big, wide, hunky frames.  Fun, small, less expensive paintings for people, which feel like little gems.  I had fun with this dog.  I painted it in about 20 minutes, and wanted to play with the design aspects of the composition.

Tomorrow I hope to get one of the Topsail Island cottages painted and posted.  Now that I've said that, I had better do it!

very sweet painting of this dog, I would love to see how you frame it as well, hope your booth sales go well

I will be framing it in a simple, wide, plein air frame. I love the wide frames for small paintings. They seem to make them have more impact and substance.
