6" x 6" oil on
To know someone, you have never met, on Facebook since 2009
makes my head spin, but I have known Liz that long.
We painted in parallel on Karin Jurick's "Different Strokes from Different Folks" -
no longer alive in the blogosphere.
Those were the days - I garnered many FB friends during those
painting challenges - I cherish the ones I still have.
This is one of her dogs, an American Foxhound, Venus.
This one was 'right there' for me, because - the PHOTO was so good!
Bright sun, filtered by shadows from the form and from the yard,
as they sat on the steps I believe.
Great contrast and close-up with all the details I needed!
Some photos do NOT lend themselves well to
being painted and I have tackled a few this past year,
it's very frustrating.
I think someday soon, I will write a blog 'tab' to help
those wanting their photos painted.
An aside, if you get a sunshine glimmer in the eye(s)
you probably have a good one!
But for now....(smile).
Please help me out and follow my FB page and LIKE it,
if you haven't. I would appreciate it -
my goal is to get to 200 'likes'
in the month of January.
