Walking the Dog

                                                  6"x8" Oil on linen panel

A small sketch I made in a New England autumn.  I had finished a larger piece of an old shack on the hill, and  then turned around and noticed the gentleman walking toward me with his friend.  I put them down quickly, and then painted the surroundings.  I was hurrying and got the colors pretty strong, but he'd stopped to watch and seemed to think it was Ok.  Something about it satisfied me, too.   Later, I scraped off the first piece which was really not very good.  All in all, it was a very pleasant October day,  New England is wonderful in fall.       Mike
