Kiwi the Pool Jumping Dog 12x16 oil on panel by Leslie Newman

This is Kiwi, she lives in Eastern Florida and loves her families pool. She has a sister Mango, and the
two of them love to take a dip and play. Kiwi's owner, who was a childhood neighbor of mine yrs ago, took of picture of her in mid-flight. We are facebook buddies and when he posted this picture, I knew I had to paint it.

I used several glazes on the water, followed by my pallette knife. I used think strokes of paint
on the dogs heavy coat. This painting was a lot of fun to do, and will soon be hanging in it's new
home in Southern Florida.
