Sled Dogs Waiting

6x6" oil on masonite

At the race, there were lots of mixed breed dogs(my favorite 'kind' of dog), part huskie,part hound,part shepard. Big and fast. The huskies though, they 'spoke' to me. Maybe its the intensity of their eyes or their coloring, or their 'wolf'ness, seeming to be one beat away from wild, touching my 'nature girl' nerve.

favorite part of this painting is the back dog's eye and bridge of nose. also the painterly-ness and intense color. ...now back to tending to my sick son and neglected laundry pile...

Debbie, your paintings are so exhuberant and you really capture the essence of the dogs. Their intensity. Awesome.
