"Walking the Fence Line", is a painting about color relationships. It has a cool tone, even the highlights on the dogs are cool. I wanted to see how much I could show, without spelling out every detail in this painting. Even with the small amounts of information, most people are able to tell me what breed the dogs are. Our minds, as well our eyes, delight in having someplace to go in a painting. That is the fun part of having loose brush work.
