Panser

Panser is another painting for the Art for Shelter Animals Project.  

According to staff Panser's a pointer who is  "spry senior" just looking for home to call his own.  


I'll be at Nicia's Pet Depot for another, "Meet the Artist" event.  Hopefully I'll have good news with a commission or two (crossing fingers).

You are such a fast worker Sheila, how do you do it!?!

Sheila!

The dog is painted a bit loose in this one but still charming. Love the colorful neckerchief.

Unique composition, cropping off the back end of Panser. Makes me want to know what he's looking at!

And the dark shadow in the lower left corner helps "ground" the dog and give the painting dimension.

My fingers will be crossed for more commissions to come your way too!

Panser looks very sweet! Good luck at your event...my fingers are crossed too!

You have a truly wonderful ability to make a very appealing painting of a dog who is probably pretty ordinary looking.

Wow. When you're back you're back. Great comp and color..way to go..
Now, I gotta get moving to keep up with the competition, Sheila.
But I am exhausted... will have to do another shelter doggie on Monday.
Hope you get a commission!

I really love the style you are developing in your animal paintings. I have this feeling good things are coming your way tomorrow. Good luck Sheila!

Ooohhhh, I love Panser. What an expression! Hope he will find a forever home soon.
Good luck on your commissions.

Hey, Sheila, I love this painting! I really love the expression on the dog's face. He is so full of the devil, for sure.

Also, I think the bunny you sewed is just as sweet as can be. But it looks like Panser has that bunny in his mouth!

Nice work. I hope your day at the pet store went swimmingly, and that you have more commissions than you'd imagined.
