Looking Back

9" x 12"
oil on canvas

Sometimes we like to just take off exploring and shoot lots of photographs. The other day we ended up in Sneads Ferry at the seafood docks and this dog came running down the hill towards us like he had found long lost friends, once he got to us, he kept looking back. I guess to see if someone had noticed he was missing. I snapped a few shots of him looking at me and some looking away, but I really liked the shadow outline of his face looking away and loved the way it feels in this painting. 


  1. I love the perspective. It brings me right into the painting.

  2. I love your dog paintings! The positions you pick are wonderful!! Every fall our family meets at Topsail Island, NC, and usually go at least once over to Sneads Ferry to buy shrimp! What a great area.

  3. Clair, I love your wonderfully loose and colorful painting style. This dog is abstract in design yet realistic to the right degree. Great artwork! Marie Fox
