THE BIG SWIM

20"x16" acrylic on canvas

This is a painting of my dog Marty. He is a 10 year old yellow lab, but still has so much energy. My wife has trained him and competed in many agility competitions. Marty has won many awards. The painting shows Marty swimming in Lake Superior.

  3. Absolutely wonderful! The water is amazing, and your dog is so special. I particularly like how you painted the water flowing over his back.

  4. Fantástico trabajo, Brad. En un primer momento me fascinó el agua -la naturalidad que has conseguido al hacerme sentir su fluidez y movimiento-, y lo sigue haciendo, pero inmediatamente después mi vista acudió a donde debía ir y me enamoró la tenacidad que recoges en la mirada de Martin, todo lo demás es fantástico, pero todo está en función, alrededor, supeditado a esa mirada, a su carácter tenaz. Pura psicología hecha pintura: un gran, gran retrato.
