A Winter Day

"A Winter Day"
22" x 22" acrylic and collage on canvas

Remember the painting of Maisie I was telling you about? Well, I just finished it last night! Here is my girl, on a crisp winter day...in all her beautiful Shepherdness. I wanted to experiment and do a dog painting that was very different from my usual portrait work. I think Maisie was the perfect subject!

Hopefully I'll be back later this week with another new abstract to show you. I say "hopefully" because my Mom is coming from California today to visit for a week. She's very excited to see her Granddog...I think more than us!

Hope you're all having a great week so far! xox

Oh my goodness Linda! My eyes popped wide open upon seeing this gorgeous painting. When I enlarged the image, my eyes grew bigger in wonderment because it got evermore awesomer ( I know that's not a word but it should be). Maisie is gorgeous in person but she is a beauty that transcends time in this painting. I love love love it.

Hi Linda,
oh wow, this is fantastic.
You've really captured the shadows, prints in snow and of course Maisie.
Have fun with your Mum!

Well, I think you've finally outdone yourself!! I can't believe the depth of Maisie's feet in the snow. Her shadow is almost eerie. What a beautiful and heartfelt tribute to Maisie. Thank you so much for sharing this with your blogging friends:
