Black Labrador Painting in Pastel

Here's my girl Shayli in all her splendor!! On this pose she is intensely fixated on her archenemy: a lucky red squirrel that had climbed to the safety of his perch.
Title: "Captivation"
Medium: pastel
Support: sandpaper
Size: 8"x10"

Splendor is a good way to describe this piece. One of your best that I have seen on your blog. Great work.

Wonderful! and the next one will be titled 'Success' judging by the determination on Shayli's face :o)

Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing lots more of your work in 2011

Thanks Sue! yes, I agree she looks determined but the squirrel seems more determined to escape!
Likewise, Happy Holidays and keep on painting!

You could not have captured Shaily any better. Amazing how much alive she looks.
