Stunning colors put side by side! Nice expression.
Thank you for the positive feedback!
Thank you Kristen Woodward,
I do not normally like how my work is described and usually some of what is said really bothers me but, I love your description of my work. I have worked on stripes and color over two decades and the subject of dogs seem to really hit a cord with viewers. It's my passion and your critique is like a breath of fresh air.
These dog portraits are quite remarkable, as they capture an affectionate tone without relying on sentimentality or romanticized depictions for visual gratification. The striking pattern imparts intricate cross contouring, making the heads beautiful sculptural objects as well as portrayals of responsive, sentient beings. I’m also struck by the apparent smoothness of the surface. At first glance I assumed they were digitally manipulated rather than painted. The blended gradation of color and value activate the negative space without interrupting the movement of linear movement in and around the head. While the series offers nuanced shifts in frontal poses, I prefer the directness of Chaco 2 and Linus. Rather than a casual directness associated with pet photos, they evoke an unwavering and intense communication.
