"Gertie" 8 x 8 inches, oil on cradled panel
Gertie is an adorable senior dog Pekingese who will always be a puppy in her owner's eyes. It was a pleasure to paint Gertie's portrait. I love dogs and especially love painting their portraits. Gertie almost looks like an angel.
Yesterday, I went plein air painting with some members of the Pittsford Art Group. I need to finish the two small paintings and they probably won't be considered plein air when I'm done. The group had a lot of fun and a great lunch from a local cafe'. Hanging with other artists is medicine sometimes.
