Capturing the liveliness of a living creature always challenges and excites me. In this painting, I took photos of a client's frisky dogs then created the painting later, relying on my photo references.

To help anchor the painting and give it unity, I employed John Salminen's 'good white shape' process. As Salminen explains, the process gives 'bones' to the painting and holds it together, even though it's not visible in the finished painting.
