repainting a painting

Sometimes a visual idea, when transferred from the brain to the canvas, can go south! I’ve been gazing at this one “leaping” dog painting I did last year. Everyday when I come into my studio…there it is on the wall. And, every time I’d focus on it, I felt that it needed work but could never come up with a solution.  Sometimes, the only solution is just paint over an idea that doesn’t work… and sometimes there is just a small clue that spurs me on to make a change.  And, as in any change one makes,  all changes require faith, courage, disappointment and finally, a solution that works! so, here is “Dogs in Tall Grass” acrylic on canvas.  Enjoy

  1. Is Dogs in the Tall Grass available?
    The yellow dog is like our new rescue lab, six year old Daisy. The black dog a reminder of our dear black lab, Polly, that we lost a couple months ago. So I love the painting — a reminder of our dear Polly and a tribute to her memory in our new treasured friend and companion, the lovely Miss Daisy. Please let me know if this is available in t-shirt, print — thank you.
