Tunnel Inspector


Tunnel Inspector

Oil on board, 6" x 6"
$125 plus $6 shipping in U.S.
SOLD

Speaking of culverts, I decided it might be nice to actually paint the light at the end of the tunnel. Winslow was debating whether or not to go in...ultimately he chickened out.

This is so cuuuuute Don! I love a painting with a story :) And Winslow was smart enough to know there's not mystery there - he didn't chicken out :) I bet this painting sells before I can say supercalifragilisticexpialadocious...

Don,
This is a marvelous painting! Love the warmth of Winslow's fur againt the grays of the culvert and rocks. You captured his body language perfectly. Just delightful!

Don Gray said...

Thanks a lot, Erika. Hope you dodged all those tornados OK!

Yep! The painting sold this morning and it goes to my significant other. Bruce knows the ways of dogs and he can read their thoughts. I can see the delight in his eyes right now, but I will have to wait until his birthday in August, so shhh........I love the painting and feel so thankful that I came across it this morning. Don, thank you for bringing so much pleasure to the world.

Haha! This painting made me smile when I saw it. No wonder it sold so quickly; every dog owner can surely relate to that humorous scene :).

Brian Cameron said...

I gotta jump in on this one...Yes the body language is so perfect and there's something happening with the light in the foreground that really makes this special. I wish I had painted it!
It must have felt great.

This is really intriguing - one of my favorites of yours!

Don Gray said...

Thanks, Sonya. It's pretty typical dog behaviour, isn't it?

Don Gray said...

Hi Brian--thanks for the encouragement! I was pleased with how the foreground came out and appreciate your mentioning it.

Enjoyed seeing your work.

Don Gray said...

Thank you, Jane.
