Mac & Kiley
18" x 24'


My client, who is both my veteranarian and my dear friend, is at the top left, watching her old rottweiler, Smiley, struggle to keep up with Mac and Kiley in the tube. The background woods not only were fun to paint but make a nice balance against the rightward pull of girls and dog. I like to create a circular composition; it moves the viewer's eye through the painting and back, after following the path of girls and dog, your eye is drawn to the upward spike of gold in the woods, then follows the pattern of forest back to Michelle, in the red jacket.
