I'm Back and here is "Gilda"-SOLD


Feeling better and the large piece is almost finished (hurray!). I should post it next week.
This is a painting that I did to take a break from the large piece.

Loooooove doing dog paintings because well I just love dogs (probably a lot more then people).
Truly your best friends! They don't care if your getting fat, or your to skinny, to young ,to old, rich or poor.
They are always so happy to see you and adore you!
This is Gilda, and she is a beauty. She is not one of mine but I hope to have a greyhound or Italian greyhound one day.

Oh! Those amber eyes against violet-grays...
She's sooo elegant.

I'm so glad you're back Sandra. I've been checking for a new post.

Wow. This one is mesmerizing. I love the subtle violet in the background. Gilda has seduced me. :)

Rene,
Thanks and I really liked The The's tune!

Silvina,
Thanks! I am really getting into this blue violet color. I am going to use it on a few more pieces. It is amazing what it does for the amber eyes.
I am sooooooo glad to be back painting too!

Thanks David! I will keep you posted on the life class at my studio. I am waiting to hear from back from Myles.

Jeff,
Yes Gilda is a beauty! I am a big dog lover as I think you are too.

Wow, another great dog painting. Liza Hurst posted some nice dog paintings on her blog recently and when I told her a couple of them reminded me of yours, she was very flattered!

sandra flood said...

Thanks Dani!
I will have to check out Liza's blog too!

Love this painting. You've really captured the look and demeanor of greyhounds here; sweet, gentle and such good companions. Bravo.

sandra flood said...

Well thank-you Belinda!
They are certainly charmers.
