Sometimes the little dogs get a bad rap and are viewed more as little spoiled companions instead of a small dog with big abilities. I just finished this painting of a little terrier going through an agility trial - something he should excel at doing.
This painting was done in gouache in a watercolor type manner and on Arches rough watercolor paper. Gouache isn't my normal medium so it was fun to explore it a bit more.
I'm an artist living in the middle of the boonies but usually enjoying every minute of it. Living in the country means no cable or super fast internet connection and certainly no brick and mortar art stores within easy reach. But it also means that we have an abundance of wildlife right outside our door as well as beautiful landscape vistas just about anywhere we look. That's well worth the lack of modern conveniences to me.
