I guess this photo could have been taken anywhere but it happened to be shot in Siena, Italy. Siena is a city that is divided into seventeen districts. All of the districts have an animal mascot and each sponsor a horse and rider to compete in an annual horse race in the Piazza del Campo in the center of the city. The race takes place in July and the winning district has bragging rights for a year.
I plan to do some scenes of actual buildings and landscape but have not gotten that far. Italy is such a beautiful country and the residents were very charming and kind. I definitely enjoyed the incredible scenery but the majority of the pictures I took were of people. So....
This scene is painted on an 8 x 10" canvas.sold

Lovely little dog with that thick wonderful paint.ReplyDelete
I love those boots! Very nice composition. I like how the figure is cropped and the dog is in the spotlight!ReplyDelete
I am getting a sense of Italy through you- thank you for that! Loving this little white dog having just gotten a brand new puppy myself. Love the composition- the ladies boots are fabulous!ReplyDelete

Another fun painting, I'm gonna love these travel pics!ReplyDelete
Silly of me, but I picture this lady enjoying a cappucino at this outdoor cafe and I wonder what she is thinking about. I also think the dog is excited to see everybody that passes him by. Doesn't this dog look a bit like your own? A fabulous piece, snippet of life painting, Carol. Love it!ReplyDelete
So nice! I love how you painted the doggie and those boots are fabulous.ReplyDelete

No wonder why you are such a favorite painter! The crossed legged boots really tell a story. Great job, Carol.ReplyDelete
