Girl and Dog

July 15, 2014

ENGLISH: This is the painting that came out of a chance encounter with Maisey and her dog Dopey, in the park close to my studio. I saw them walking by and I soon envisioned the possibility of a painting. I asked her and she agreed to pose for me with her dog another day, so we could get organized and i could sketch some ideas. Yesterday she came to my studio to see the finished piece and was really happy with the result, and Dopey seemed happy too, until he spotted another dog passing by and started to agitate furiously, not caring anymore for the delicate work on canvas just beside him…

ESPAÑOL: Este es el cuadro que ha surgido de un encuentro casual con Masey y su perro Dopey, en el parque a lado de mi estudio. Los ví pasar y en seguida concebí la posibilidad de pintarlos. Le pregunté si posaría para mi con su perro y aceptó, as´y que quedamos par otro día para organizarnos y preparar unos bocetos. Ayer vino a mi estudio para ver el cuadro acabado y se quedó muy contenta con el resultado, y Dopey pareció contento también, hasta que vio pasar a otro perro y empezó a agitarse furiosamente sin preocuparse del trabajo delicado en lienzo justo a su lado…

This is the original setting for the painting, just outside my studio, but now with less flowers.
