I dropped this painting too. No kidding. I have this very elaborate system that I can not believe continues to fail me. I place the painting in an oversized box lid facing away from the sun. I very carefully place it upright on an old rolling office chair and then I mosey back to my camera mounted on a tripod. You would think after numerous paintings have been catapulted to the ground by the wind that I would secure the box lid to the chair and not mosey back to my camera. I will touch up the office chair scrapes and concrete granules tomorrow but for now you can see the damage in all its glory. I don't make these things up.
I photographed this lab in North Carolina this Fall. He was not thrilled by my camera and me. I interrupted his nap when I opened the door to his master's shop. I think I could have stayed there a few more minutes and he would not have lifted his head off his paw. Not much sweeter than a lab. This is painted on a 12 x 12" cradled panel. Fun to do a dog when it is not a commission.
In case you guys that don't live in the South are not familiar with the word mosey , it means to walk slowly enjoyng the sights around you.SOLD
