“Tall Grass”

“Tall Grass”

12 x 9″ oil – canvas panel
Its been awhile since I did a painting of my dog Bill. He’s such a great subject. I still want to work on it some, but for the most part I think its close.
What is it that we love so much about our dogs? Aside from the fact that they’ll love us no matter what. I think for me its their cartoonish ways. I mean this is about as serious a look as Bill can muster and he still looks adorably goofy.

    Deb, I fell in love with border collies and aussies on my may visits to Montana. I love the portrait you captured of Bill. You've inspired me to try more portraits of my aussie!

    Bill looks like a real charmer and you've done a beautiful painting of him, Deb! (I'm enjoying your different textures in the fur and grass.)
