Fay Terry "STONE DOG", oil on 6x6" gessobord panel, ©2012
I liked Karen Werner's idea in a recent post. I decided to emulate her and paint in my own backyard which was so much more fun than packing everything up and driving to a spot to paint.
I started early this morning and it worked out well because it was in the mid eighties not long after I finished. This dog has been faithfully holding the basket for about fifteen years and is perched on a low brick wall beside some steps. These are some new and tiny little petunias that we found at Lowe's last week-end, said to be very drought resistant.
