Blasted Weimaraner

I think I'm finally done with this thing.  Am I?  I dunno.  Something about his face is still irking me.  I decided it was time to step away from the canvas, back up and look it it, and then walk away for a little while.  Sometimes you have to do that, and then you come back and it doesn't look like half the critter's face is on upside down. 

But, I've been working on this thing for two years.  It was the painting I started when I wasn't really painting, and it sat on top of the entertainment center and stared at me for over a year.  I worked on him a couple of days in December. 

This morning when I was trying to decide what to paint, I thought about the unfinished stuff... I've got the flamenco dancer, the water droplet, Squire's castle, Chuck's waterfall, and this guy all in various stages of not done yet, so I decided it was time to sit down and clean up some WIPs.  Starting with the one that's been sitting around forever.

So, there you go.

I also varnished about a dozen finished paintings and right now I think I am getting high from fumes.  Whee!  No wonder the dog looks trippy.  But, for the most part, he's done.  Yay!  Bring on the next one.
