new oil in progress
ON THE EASEL
Today's latest post is the preview of my artwork that will be offered to assist
DALMATIAN RESCUE of TAMPA BAY.
About the painting:
"Tucker" was the inspiration for this oil painting.
The story it tells is of a pair of Dal buddies who have been brought to the lake to cool off on a wonderful summer day...it looks so inviting that I am sure the humans are joining these two very soon...if they are as smart as Dalmatians, that is!
One of the best things about being an artist is that you get to tell a story in paint.
Sometimes it is only the look in the eyes that conveys a deeper message or hint at a story that the viewer finishes for themselves... if they connect with the painting.
The true magic of art is for the artist to bring something to the viewer and the viewer takes it from there and gives meaning to the work.
This is my personal working philosophy.
About the Model:
Tucker was (and truly remains) the beloved Dal of a rescue volunteer for DRTB, today Tucker's beauty is still working to assist other dalmatians in need of homes and health care by inspiring some of my recent paintings for the rescue. He continues to be a Dal Angel for others.
