Meet Mr. Jack Daniels, a weimaraner and dear family friend, lost to cancer this year.  This portrait was like pulling teeth at first…(sometimes a painting just clicks, and sometimes it feels forced)…this one definitely felt like the latter to begin with…so I just rolled with it, and let it evolve on it’s own.  I’ve just passed the “subtractive” stage of this painting, and this is usually where I begin to tweak things with an “additive” technique…but something is telling me to stop, and appreciate it in its simplicity…I would love any comments / suggestions ya’ll might have…
