Shiner


I wanted this to be super loose to convey the movement of my friend KK's dog Shiner having fun with his tennis ball. I had it even looser than this but, you know how that goes! This is really small for me but I may do a 12x12 oil of it for the Maranda Pleasant show in Austin on December 5th. 5x5 acrylic on canvas. Private Collection.

Wonderful painting, Camille! You really caught Shiner's energy. Plus, really cool use of color.

Caio, I think I made him almost scary but a dog with a ball can get a little crazy-looking. Glad you like!

This doggie is crazy looking indeed - that's what dogs look like when they are havin fun! I like the blues you used! Waitin for more!

You've captured so much personality in this! Great energy and color!

purple/yellow dog is very cool. Not just the colors, but also the perspective that makes the ball almost as big as his head.

Colors and expression are spot on Ms Camille.

I like it too - a real 'action' painting! Hard to DO! I even love the creamy colors of the background. Please post the larger one you do, too, OK?

Very nice Camille. I love the aura of green around Shiner. This pooch is in a happy place.
