I love it! This looks a great deal like my Millie dog's face and expression.
Oh thank you Chip! I am a bit shy about posting my stuff-I always see the flaws....
Beautiful painting. You are an inspiration.
Oh I do love this, Debra! No flaws to me. I know the “work” you mean while trying to get back to painting here. I keep trying everyday, but I’m not nearly as accomplished. Actually, I’m in the early throes of deciding what kind of paint I like to use! It’s tiring, I’ve found.
Oh, my! This one is wonderful!
Debra, your beautiful painting just glows.I think your hand was cooperating more than you think!
This is Fantastic!! Have you seen JACK?? He is my daughter's dog and you really captured him. This is such a great painting. It may not be what your mind saw, but it's great. I think I might be your biggest fan!!xx, Carol
Hi DebraYou don't have to post this comment. I had to go back and embiggin the picture for a close look. I am totally amazed that the brush strokes of different shades create such a unison of color. See I don't know how to describe what I see using artist lingo. This is just such a stunning piece. I needed to see a close up of the eye too. This is one of my most favorite of your pieces.xx, Carol
Debra, by “painting every day” do you mean you start and complete a painting each day? Do you sketch or grid your paintings first? Just wondering....Barbara
Barbara-I am trying to paint every day, but I don't try to finish a painting every day. I'm happy with a few hours to work, re-work, or plan the next thing. I am overjoyed at my blog pals response-it will keep me going! Thank you!And---no, I didn't grid this at all. I lightly sketched, using a beautiful photo from Pixabay-which is a free, no copyright worry place to share and use others' photos. It is legal to use them in any form, and to sell paintings made from the photos. Believe me, I read all the fine print. There are other sites like this out there, but I have found all I'll need right at Pixabay.
P.S. -if you saw the photo I used next to my painting-you'd see my flaws very plainly!!!
This is beautiful. It's perfect! I love this painting.
Dearest Debra just gorgeous. Of course I love the subject matter. Your song from the previous post was beautiful too. Have a great week. Hugs!
It's beautiful Debra. Keep going!
Debra, did you post a new painting? I see a thumbnail but not a post. Is blogger acting up again?Barbara
