Day 98

Still obsessing with Cloud's shadow. I love that it looks like it's materializing from the shadow of the telephone pole, and the way the telephone pole shadow makes the color of his back legs so much cooler and darker. I also like that you can see the metal harness ring and leash snap in his shadow. These kinds of things interest and amuse me. I'm a pretty cheap date. 


  1. I'm enjoying this series. As a photographer, I go through phases of being obsessed with my dogs and their shadows (usually in the winter with the low sun and the white snow on the ground). I love seeing your painting depictions of Cloud and his many shadows!

    1. Glad to know I'm not alone in my shadow obsession, KB. And I'm glad you're enjoying the series, because I'm having so much fun painting these, that I don't see myself stopping any time soon!
