Painting in Oil
Oh Susan, he's so handsome! It looks beautiful framed. Your client will absolutely love him!!
Hi Hilda, I always await the verdict with bated breath but he is one of my favorites and I think he will make his new owner happy!
What a great painting! It looks like he is going to walk right off the page. Well done!
Thanks, Heather - he is a very self assured Dane!
Someone in South Carolina has good taste!
She promised to send me some photos after she hangs him in her home - I can't wait to see them!
:) - thank you, Gina!
lovely work...you nailed the majesty of a beautiful breed
Many thanks, Celeste!
Fear not for I'm sure he is off to an appreciative and loving home.....he's gorgeous!
That is what I always hope, Elizabeth - Thank you so much for stopping by and your encouraging words!
He looks great framed!
I love how nice frames just seem to dress up a painting. Thanks, Judy!
What a wonderful painting! The textures are great. Congratulations. I too would miss the pup just loping along doing his thing.
Yes- just loping along doing his thing! Thanks, Linda - its been great fun kind of going through y our workshop with you! I must get over to your site and see what has been going on since!
Congrats, lovely colors!
Thanks, Maike - I usually take advantage of artistic license with my color choices- glad you like them.
The actual dog, or the painting? Lol!It is gorgeous! There is such movement in this! And he is just oooooozing character too :0)
Thanks, Sandra - I generally do miss my paintings when they go to other homes - they take a we bit of me with them each time.
He is a most handsome dude! I can understand your missing him. He has that beautiful yet awkward [and lovable] look of the breed.
Yes, danes are quite unique - gangly and awkward yet majestic and regal all at once!
so well done!
Many thanks, Ashok!
He's walking proud! So fantastic! And I like the way you did the background. Happy Painting.
I like the background too - the pink color makes this painting for me. Thanks, Nora!
Ooops! This one nearly slipped under my radar, only just noticed it ...sorry!Mixed news then: a sale and a loss ... solution = paint another :0)Have a nice weekend, Susan
Ah - if only it were that easy! Actually, I have tried to do that in the past - paint another of a painting that has been sold - but have not had success. It seems there is only one of each in the universe!Thanks, John - and I did have a nice weekend - a rather spectacular one in fact :)! Hope you did too!
Sold. I am glad so much when see this sign on the painting. Artist's work is rewarded.
It always thrills me to sell a painting - and I ususally run right out to the art store and buy more paint, brushes and canvas!
Great painting Susan! We all know the feeling of missing a painting! Not too long ago I sold a painting that I had no intention of selling! The buyer had such an emotional and heart warming attachment that I just had to let him have it. I still miss it and have two framed photos of that piece hanging in my home. (i still miss it!)Love your work and I will be back again.Michael
Hi, Michael - and many thanks for stopping by! It's always a surprise to me how attached I am and how hard it is to let them go. Like you miss yours, I still miss mine! Obviously they are a labor of love!
Your comments are welcome and brighten my day!
