Description

I loved the playful mood of this picture as well as the splashes of light and dark.  My painting was meant to capture the essence of Tibs' spirited personality. I am used to working on larger canvases in a loose style. The biggest challenge for me was working on a small canvas, which led me to be extra focused on the importance of each brushstroke.

Judge's Comment: "Animated, appealing mood in a pleasing composition engages us instantly. Broad brushstrokes in transparent layers and large swaths of contrasting values balance the scene, adding to the sense of abandon and glee connecting viewer to subject. The blue, jewel-like collar detail and deeply cast shadow is both convincing and grounding."
