Original oil painting Size: 14" x 11"This oil painting was inspired by my Dalmatian, Buddy, a rescue dog. I spotted Buddy running around the Silverlake Reservoir on my way home from a yoga class at Silverlake Yoga almost a decade ago. He had a rope tied around his neck and was very thin with rashes. I chased him for about two hours throughout the steep hills that Silverlake is known for. At one point, Buddy jumped on top of a roof and I had to ask permission from the homeowner to retrieve him. Once I chased him from the man's rooftop, Buddy evaded my grasp once again and headed for an open field overgrown with weeds. I don't know why I didn't give up, but I pursued him until he finally looked at me just as he is in the above closeup, and then sat down, finally giving up the chase. Since then, he has been a favourite model of mine for my Dog Art.
