English Springer Spaniel doing Agility Test

Okay, here's my painting for today - and I think I've loosened up a lot in my painting.  I really love the motion, the "painterliness" of this one.  I didn't draw in every single hair and be slavishly driven by the photo of the dog.  I used the images of this dog to create what I feel is an exciting, colorful, filled-with-personality painting.  I hope (fingers crossed!!!) I can continue in this direction!!!

This painting is for sale, by the way.  It's an 8x10" on wood panel, unframed.  It sells for $125, and I'll frame it for you for an extra $15.  Of course, as usual, prints, pendants, and clocks are available on my website, http://www.wildwildthings.com/.

Thanks so much, Suzan! I try hard and love, love, love what I do. I haven't done a Portuguese Water Dog yet, but I promise I'll do one before too much longer. It is on my to-do list, and it's getting nearer to the top. (As you can see on my blog, lately I've been interspersing my dog paintings with "anything else but dogs." I just needed a break from too many commissions and to clear my brain a bit.
