Begin with play

I’ve done a lot of dog portrait commissions in the past and they have been reasonably realistic. This is a painting I had fun with today, painted from an old photo, and painted with a sense of play. I will do more of these because it was so freeing. After being away from painting, there is a bit of reluctance to begin. What to paint and other questions arise. I figure play is a good way to begin.Image
