Lazy hazy summer days

Waiting for the Parade
8 x 8
oil on wrapped canvas
I saw this scene at our local market and loved the way the pooch sat patiently on the bench. The personalities seemed to come out in each of the figures as I painted them and no matter how I tried to change the dog owner I couldn't seem to make him happier...Maybe he'd rather be walking. It's so much fun to go to the markets to see the parade of dogs and to buy local organic produce. I love summer and it so close to being over I can almost smell the fall air. I'm swimming almost daily in the lake for fear it will be the last one.

Thank you David and Dana,
I never thought I would be attempting people but they can be such an intriguing subject.
