I'm happy with it, the painting that is. A good thing about painting ownerless dogs is that I can paint freely with only myself to please. I can experiment with new techniques. Yes, I'm happy with this one. 

The dog in the painting is Noah. I mentioned in a prior post that my dog Thor is a Boxer. Thor perfectly defines clown with his antics. Always I am amazed at how high he can bounce. Jump, yes, but the word bounce creates a perfect word picture for his exuberance. He is such a happy go lucky boy. More about Thor boy later.

As a child, I was reprimanded for daydreaming. Today my daydreams morph into paintings.
