Night



My beautiful 13 and 1/2 year old Golden Retriever died today. I shall miss him so much. He was a great companion and we had many wonderful adventures together.

I found this marvelous black perfume bottle tucked away on a shelf in one of my favorite thrift shops. There were many bottles but this one was beautifully shaped and eloquent. I tried to maintain a deeper and more grayed background. I wanted the bottle to command a quiet and dignified center of attention. The background color was just working in this painting so I took the liberty of reworking the value structure.

So sorry to hear about your dog. My dog, an Australian/Collie mix is 11 years old, and I cannot imagine the day we loose her. They bring so much to our lives, truly become a part of the family.
