Carol suggested today that I paint a puppy. I was away most of the day and when I came back late in the afternoon I thought, what the heck! Why not? So I dug out my photos of the two dogs owned by the proprietors of the Yuhu Guest House near Lijiang in Yunnan Province, China, where I traveled two years ago with Barry Raybould and Timothy Tien. We spent nearly a week in this wonderful little village beneath the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain painting the countryside and anyone we could convince to sit for us as a model. I painted the other resident dog from a photo a few months ago. The photo I took of this current painting is not great because I had to use studio lighting rather than the daylight from my skylights so I may try to take a better photo tomorrow. The dog was really small and probably really old--definitely not a puppy!
Purchase this unframed painting for $115.
Contact me if you would like to purchase a plein air frame.
