Day 4/30: D is for Dog

"A Good Dog"
6" x 6"
Oil on Board
This little fellow is Edgar.  One of the neat byproducts of plein air painting is meeting some really nice people while you're painting.  Now, you can also meet some real nuts, let me tell you, but this little guy's owner is a wonderful man who stopped by to see what I was painting a few years ago out on the beautiful grounds of the Alabama Shakespeare Festival.  He asked if I painted pets and if he could commission me to paint Edgar.  Of course!  What a pretty and good dog!  Knowing I wanted to paint a dog for today's "D" painting, I went through my photos and there was little Edgar in the sunshine.  I hope he's doing well these days!
This post also doubles as my "All Things Southern" feature this week because the South is definitely a 'dog loving' region!
