Play With Me?

“Play with Me?” 6×6 original oil on panel $150

Just throw the ball, OK?

I enjoyed painting this shepherd with the strong light contrast. I started the painting as a demo for my art students this morning and finished it in the studio this afternoon. The dog had belonged to one of my students years ago, and she brought the photo in for my challenge.

I really like painting these quick little paintings as often as possible. Every day is a great challenge, but so far I can do three or four a week. Teaching four classes a week may have something to do with it!

Thanks for taking a look – with an artist’s eye …


  1. Oh wow, I love the lighting on this! It’s so strong and well… just beautiful! Lovely work!
