Ever Watchful

This is my contribution to Dean Haven's book on The Flying Moleskins blog. He left his subject matter open and since I know he's an animal lover, I thought I'd do a painting of a cute little dog that was in my dog's training class.

This is wonderful Edward, the dog is great but what I really love this the way the pants read as bagging too long.

Ed, this is so great, even down to the sandals. I can't believe you haven't already received it, but since I don't find it on your site, I have given you the Sunshine Award. Details are on my blog. Congrats!

So beautifully done and such a wonderful, clever perspective.

This is a great angle, looking at, not down on the dog! And, love the pant legs.

Love this composition and the expression on this little guy. I also like the blues in the foreground and background that allow the dog to stand out.
