sundance


Nobody naps like a dog.

Sundance

This is dedicated to this proud old guy,
who at age 12 wasn't too old to go out on a toot today
in dogged pursuit of a girl.
Then we "rescued" him and called his mother.
I bet he's sleeping well tonight,
and I bet he's pissed at us.

Nice painting. I suspect Sundance has a clear conscience--or no conscience. He'll sleep well, and dream of the chase.

He's already dreaming of his next getaway, in search of a new girl!

Wow Sam, isn't that so true. Just love this painting - and good on you fellah, sometimes we have to escape and go a bit crazy.

Better to be pissed off than pissed on. To be pissed at.......?
Nice painting. He has great weight. I like the big size on a small scale.

Yes, it's a big little painting. Ol' Sundance is an oaf. I'd guess he weighs in at 90 pounds -- at least.

Where did Sundance come from? And who was the lass he was after?

Love this painting...you really have made the viewer have an understanding of that wonderful ol' rascal.

lovely painting. I love looking at Sundance at his eye level.

My dog doesn't like other dogs. Too bad. I would send her to visit Sundance.

I don’t think I ever saw a more expressive portrait of a dog! – or of a man, woman or child, even. You’ve really caught the sense of yearning in this magnificent old trooper.

What a wonderful portrait! You've captured the peaceful contentment known only to dogs (and perhaps infants, if they're sleeping, lol). Beautiful.
