Play Ball

Yesterday I took an art workshop with Jason Daniel Jackson sponsored by the Hopkinsville Art Guild and we painted a still life. What attracted me to this set up was the rim light on the dog. Can anyone come up with a good name for this cute little pooch?

Love the light and shadow you've caught here. Cute little fella - maybe just plain Fluffy would do it?

I thought it was a photograph, Rhonda! It looks so realistic!

How about the title "Playtime"?

Hi Liz,
That is what attracted me to this set up was the play on the light and shadow. He does look like a fluffy!

Thanks Pat, I like your suggestion too!!

Wow, a fantastic painting. You nailed the values and the color harmony is subtle but powerful!
