Down Dog

6x6" oil

OK, so the title is a bit tongue-in-cheek, but I can't help myself. I've been wanting to do a painting of my dog doing this yoga stretch since I got her, but I've never gotten a good shot of the pose until now. I love how she's squinting into the sun, and I can feel the stretch in my own ribs and legs when I look at this painting. This would be cool in someone's yoga studio. This painting is available at Alpine Art.

The beginnings...I decided to paint on red.

awwww, the real dog in my studio while I paint

I love this painting! My dog does this "yoga pose" many times a day and I also can feel her stretch. You did a great job in capturing that feeling!
