Quest, Australian Shepherd

I have been working on this 11x14 Oil for several weeks. I wanted to do something for my agility instructor. Quest is one of her agility dogs. The photos she gave me were of Quest jumping a bar with a very serious look on his face and she wanted him smiling and jumping something in nature. I chose a stream as the dog does live in the country.. She is very happy with the painting which pleases me.
I wish I had more time to paint as I am working part-time, working on agility, trying to keep the garden and house up. I am pleased that this painting turned out and am anxious to start something new.

Went to the May Show opening and Artist's reception at the Mansfield Art Center. The show was nicely hung and it had so much more representational art than previous years and that was nice to see. There were many people at the opening. Not many I knew. I was so pleased to get two paintings in this year.
I have not been able to paint much with working at the Kingwood Center and my allergies are especially bad this year and my eyes are itchy and swollen. I hope the trees are soon done pollenating or we get a heavy rain.I am working on an 11x14 dog portrait and will post soon.
