Sleepy Spot II (and failed attempt at Sleepy Spot II)

Sleepy Spot II  Oil on wood, 8" x 8," SOLD
1st attempt, big fail oh yes
I tried painting "Sleepy Spot II' before. My first attempt was pretty lame.  I was off the mark on color and I didn't lay in enough middle tones to accentuate Spot's fur. Will attach photo to the left for your amusement. :)  That was a bad painting day, but today wasn't. I'm happy with this one.


  1. Isn't it amazing how adding the "ugly" colors just makes the beautiful more beautiful. I love that you showed both photos. Sometimes I don't "see" what's wrong with a painting until I take a photo of it and look at that. Do you ever find that to be true too? Although your first one is very nice, the final one is just right and beautiful.

  2. You should be very happy with this painting!! Nice work!
