The Italian Grayhound breed fascinates me. These dogs are like high fashion models ..all lines and curves. This little 'Italiano' greeted me at our local tack shop....I asked if I could photograph the little one and this is one of the shots that interested me....the shadow and lines and curves again.
This is a small casein on canvas on board. [5 x 7"] A joy to paint.
This Labor Day is a glorious day weather wise for us here in Morrill, Maine...we are blessed. My thoughts have been with all the folks...and animals .. affected by Gustav as he pushs his way into their lives today. God bless them all.
