6 x6 Acrylic on Panel
Here he was at a neighborhood gathering when out came my camera and "FREEZE" I yelled!
Being good natured he stood there, then he stood some more, then finally... sat down.
I asked him his name but no answer. I later learned he was just visiting and was trying to blend in but I did not cooperate.
I thought he was a great sample of a black lab, and wanted to photograph him, but then...I looked at his legs, oooops! You can't see it in this painting, but he does not have the legs of a Black Lab.
He asked that I only paint his face! He did say I could be creative with his coloring, and so we have a painting of a "Blue Statue"
I did find this guy at a friend's party and he was so nice! He let me move him around and try to capture a good pose. You won't believe it though, all my photos came out blurry and so this painting was done with a great deal of imagination! Exactly what I caution against...bad photos/sketches are hard to work with.
I think I captured his personality though, any comments?
Thanks for visiting and hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather
(at least it's great here in Houston, Tx!)
