The Dog Ate My Primroses
8x8, oil on canvas panel
This would be when my [wonderful] teachers' words, repeating like a refrain in my head, "paint what you see - not what you think you see" might have gotten away from me. Everybody sees the dog, right? Well, I didn't until I took the photo. And now I like it. Could be the lively music I've been listening to this morning going to my head. How embarassing when Mr. Right came home unexpectedly and [almost] caught me twirling around the house, dancing and painting.... Happy Weekend!

Beautiful little painting! I didn#'t see the dog until you pointed it out. I immediately was drawn to the flowers!
