About This Painting:
The second image shows just one of a multitude of steps that the whole painting process took.
Four feet X five feet is a large painting. I kept a photo diary of the entire process from building the canvas to the final paint stroke. From a piece of canvas and sticks of wood to a finished painting that is bigger than life. The process took over 100 hours and was a labor of love. Barkley is the wonderful dog who the painting portrays. You can see her spirit shining through.
