Dog on the Dock


Here's a diptych of 2 dogs... they were Chocolate Labs in real life but look more like black here, obviously! I have painted the background on both, but am not quite happy with it. Maybe I'll carve a pattern (or 2) and print them in the sky area with light colored inks. OR.... possibly chine colle in the large white spaces and water.... hmmmm.

these look great! and i love the chine colle idea...

love your portrait boxes, too. there's a brunswick artist who makes faces on boxes - i'll have to look her up for you - can't remember her last name - but i think you'd enjoy seeing her work!

good luck with your show!

Hi Brenda

Her name is Arlene Morris. Here is her website. Look at the 3-D work and you'll find her boxes!


happy Weekend to you, too!
