Trail-Happy Yellow Lab

Oil Painting Labrador Retriever Dog Art Pet Portrait Woods

Oil on hardboard, 10" x 8"

I was happy that this painting of a Lab was juried into the Art Show at the Dog Show this spring at Wichita, Kansas (www.artshowatthedogshow.com).  A great thing about Labs is that they are always ready for a hike and especially when it involves rough, hilly terrain in a woodsy environment.  This angle of a yellow Lab captures the reflected coloring on her face, neck and chest from the forest plants and sky. That was the hook for me and her intense concentration on something in the distance was also appealing.  I was keeping the paint heavier and striving for a looser feeling in the piece.
