“Bird Dog” is intended to capture the pure joy of a dog playing on the beach. If I got it right, you should smile or giggle at the scene. For those of you who love birds, rest assured no birds were harmed in the making of this painting. I was inspired by a photo of a dog playing on a beach, but the most striking thing for me was the stylistic impact of the silhouette. There’s something compelling about the lack of details in the darkened shapes of the dog and birds, perhaps giving more to the imagination of the viewer, allowing it to be personalized. Additionally, the silhouettes lend themselves well to a sense of motion.

Get to Know the Austin Artist:
I picked up the creative bug years ago after realizing how much I enjoyed sketching, which started on vacation while cooped up inside waiting out a particularly long, intense rain storm. Shortly after that trip I took my first painting class at Laguna Gloria in Austin and quickly became addicted to the creative process.
My art subjects tend to reflect my life's passions, most commonly landscapes explored while traveling with my wife, experiencing the great outdoors, or fun with our dogs.
