If you want to view the detail in this painting, I recommend clicking on the etsy link below to view the different close-ups. I don’t have a lot to say about this piece….it speaks for itself, although I should mention that I decided to finish it suddenly once I couldn’t get the idea that the second Russian Borzoi (blue hat) was really beginning to look like Edith from Downton Abbey. Either my brain is fried, or I’ve been watching that show way too much. Not to say that Edith looks like a dog, in fact, I think she’s looking really good this season with the sassy hairdo and pretty outfits, but I think most people have their dog counterparts. Ever think what yours may be?
Side fact: I must say ‘I want a Borzoi‘ at least once a day. John always follows this statement with a resounding ‘No’. I’ll work on him. To quote my favourite line from ‘No Country For Old Men’- the same line I used when I decided to get Finnegan: You Can’t Stop What’s Coming.
I should also mention that I do have some non-Miss Moon material coming up. I’ve been working on some figurative pieces, one of which is fairly large. Fingers crossed that it works out.
