"Darby" by Clair Hartmann

15" x 11"
oil on canvas
Sold to a collector in California

I was so moved by a Blog Post from Dog Art Today about the recent passing of the blogger's best companion, Darby that I HAD to paint him (warning: make sure you have tissues). 

I thought about doing this painting for two months and finally the right time came and it was painted in about 2-3 hours, almost as though it painted itself. It went by so quickly that I kept wanting to paint more, but it was done and I knew it. 

I absolutely love this painting - I feel a soul to it.

  1. All your paintings have soul, Clair! The background of poofy, cloudlike fabric is perfect.
