There's only a few days left to vote for your favorite dog painting in the Canine Art Guilds "Helping Paws" online exhibit. The prize money for People's Choice awards go to the artists dog rescue of choice. I'm supporting Greyhounds Unlimited, and we would appreciate your vote!
This painting is available, and half the proceeds go to support GU.
Have a wonderful week!

This painting means a lot to me. A few of you may recognize this dog as my Brittany Benny who passed away in 2009 at the age of 14.
Senior dogs, and Benny in particular, have such a dignity and gentleness about them. They aren't burdened with our hang-ups and worries about aging. They don't notice or care about their graying faces.
I don't have many work-in-progress photos of this piece, but here is the beginning stage with the thin underpainting.
Happy 2011!!! It's going to be a great year!
