12" x 12" - acrylic on canvas
This is Skye, my sister's black lab. I had intended to give this painting to her as a surprise gift for her birthday in May - but it was not finished at that point, and rather than rush it, I decided to get back to it in the summer when I had more time. I was having a bit of trouble deciding on the background, when I realized the obvious - a Skye landscape of course, as she is named for the misty Isle, and I have just returned from that part of the world and it is fresh in my brain. So here is Skye on Skye.
