Started as a daily painting blog but this is easier to live with-
the once-in-a-while blog of a painter who also writes.

February 18 Different Strokes

This is a great little painting. I loaded the buttery background on- one solid color but thick enough to drip. Then 30 strokes of black paint created the man, his dog and the bird. Very satisfying little painting.

  1. I love it! For some reason, it makes me want to dance. I can feel the movement, and it's impossible to not smile while looking at it. Go ahead, try to stop smiling. See what I mean?

  2. You got it. A sweet little painting that makes you smile : )

  3. Hi. I'm on the way back from distant lands and stuck in the first US airprot I've seen for a while, which means the first Internet in a while. You will not be surprised to hear that I am convinced that the dog is Mole' and I really really need to be home. Nicew welcome home-thank you.

  4. No other pup has as much influence on me as Mole. So, I agree. It must be him.
