Today I want to introduce you to...
Bogey In Red
Mixed Media – acrylic & oil
12x24 1/2"deep panel board
Bogey In Red is one of my favorite paintings because this was the first painting I decided to do something different with and not so traditional. Oh and Bogey is an adorable Beagle – of course, painting him has NOTHING to do with the fact that I adore Beagles ;-) (uhm Dukie) but more so because I love painting dogs. Dogs have such personality, they are beautiful, comical, smart and never have an ego, they just... love unconditionally. I can't get enough of them! To me art and dogs fit perfectly.
In this painting I wanted to combine design, composition, bold colors and texture. I also wanted to approach a more contemporary style that I feel my work is moving towards. I really enjoyed the creative process I went through when painting Bogey. Painting is limitless...I mean to be able to challenge oneself to create something new, to be able to take your work a step further and to go beyond what a photo provides is so much fun and for me, its part of growing – evolving as an artist.
~ Thank you Bogey!
