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

Carol! I found your blog!! Wonderful paintings! And...I know all about moseying or mosieing??? My Cleveland, Ohio born and bred husband just loves these Southern expressions.ReplyDelete
Mosey onward to more fun paintings, Carol. Thanks so much for your kind comments on my blog!!
First, this is just too sweet. Love that face and you did a wonderful job. Gorgeous brush strokes:)
I have already confirmed that "mosey" is indeed a word for us- And, I believe you about the way you take photos as you taught me....However, I think in the interest of not perpetuating any more myths about the South- we need to get you that Photo Cube. Yes, the one from DISCOUNT TOMMY on ebay and no, he is not my cousin!! Haha...seriously, huge difference- call me and I will fill you in:) Later y'all....
Funny Kathy. I do have a cousin named discount john tommy.ReplyDelete
LOVE THIS FACE! Beautiful brushwork, he reminds me of our Cooper (my son's Lab)ReplyDelete
Great painting Carol!
What a sweet face Carol, I love the colors you chose to paint him! This west coast gal felt it was funny that you felt the need to define 'mosey'...I used to watch Bonanza!ReplyDelete
What an expressive piece Carol! Just sweet.ReplyDelete
Carol--amazing brushwork--I love it! The personality of the dog is so there.ReplyDelete
This is so sweet, Carol, and the colors and brushwork is great!ReplyDelete
Love this painting! Concrete and all! :-) Yes, mosey is a fine southern word and found in many a southern expression. And the lab is in a good southern, lazy pose. Your colors are amazing in this and painted with beautiful brushstrokes!ReplyDelete
Make sure to secure the painting! I know the feeling of having silly mistakes like that happen over and over again - what's the definition of insanity again? Ha. Nevertheless, beautiful job, even with the scrapes and concrete pieces!ReplyDelete
Love your stories as well as all of the colors and brushstrokes in this piece. Very fitting for this pup!ReplyDelete
Carol, this is truly lovely! Somehow you've captured the nature of this gorgeous Lab, his colors, his soul. No matter that dropping...it is still gorgeous. I see different styles of brush strokes in your pieces, some larger and sweeping and bold, others tighter and allowing for more intimate detail. All of your strokes come together in beautiful pieces!ReplyDelete
Thanks guys. Think I was a bit slap happy when I wrote this post.ReplyDelete
I love the colors you chose to paint this guy in and you captured such great expression in his eyes, typical lab, just wonderful.ReplyDelete
He looks good to me, Carol! I don't see any concrete, just lovely brushstrokes. Very nice!ReplyDelete
This is a really fun painting, great colors and brushwork. I am fixin to mosey into the kitchen and get another cup of coffee now.ReplyDelete
I love his little expression! And great stories of your photography experiences! You really captured that content doggie face!ReplyDelete
Lovely puppy with great brushwork- I am pretty partial to puppy paintings.:) I am fixin to mosey over to the easel. Remember I live in Tennessee, so I mosey a lot. :) You're too funny!ReplyDelete
