Dog Toy Painting Series

I've started a series of still lives featuring my tiny six pound dog Carol's toys. This painting has a similar composition to the one I did last week. I like pairing up a toy with another of Carol's worldly possessions. I might do one more like this next so that I have a matching set of three.

Love this series -- glad to see you are painting again.

I like the dramatic lighting in the snowman one (seems to be a theme with you).

Even the one you consider a failure -- the pastel paper did something to your brush strokes that, at least in reproduction, looks kinda cool.

nice work,
--Dan

thanks,

I'm glad you like them! I'm looking forward to getting back to it this Saturday. The pastel one looks cooler in the photo, but I still like the painting. Carol's gonna need more toys soon.

I have a new series idea for you:

Does Fee still have his collection of obscenely small T-shirts with kittens and such on them? You could tack them up to various textured surfaces or juxtapose them with objects for a kind of transmuted portrait.

(Eh... it seemed like a good idea until I typed it out)

These days that shirt would fit Brian and be tight on me.
