Click Here To Buy It Now - Sold, oil on gesso board, 6x6 inches
I was following this guy on one of my early morning walks in California last summer. The light was so great, the colors, the dog; I couldn't have asked for better subject matter. This is another painting where I've been experimenting with different size and styles of brushes and also that scribbly/scratchy technique which is very fun.

I photographed these ladies at a local art festival last summer. I take a lot of photos in hopes of using a few for paintings, it always feels like Christmas when I load my photos and find one that inspires me like this one did. These ladies were actually in the background and I cropped everything else out. I also started experimenting with new painting techniques learned in a workshop this past winter and I'm having fun with scribbly scratchy brush work.
I need to note that the bright foreground sidewalk color is a tad more yellow than the photo shows but this was the best I could adjust the colors.
