An Acrylic Painting for Today



"Black and Tan"
6" x 6"
acrylic on Raymar board
Just a quick painting this afternoon, to loosen up the brush hand and ways of seeing.  It feels real rusty - even though the job I had been doing used my hands alot with detailing and finetuning.  But...I started - got past that jumping off point and on the road again - hopefully.  It was interesting - having all the fans going and trying to keep the acrylic paint wet enough on the palette.  Hot here today, think I will finish off the night with a little mowing and then a movie on PPV. 
Maybe the mosquitoes won't be so relentless - wishful thinking.

I love this - it looks like the first puppy I had as a young child. 'Buttons' had the same sweet face!
