Golden Goofball

16 X 16 oil on gallery wrap canvas - no frame needed
$220 includes shipping and insurance
I have painted this pooch before. He belongs to a "horsey" friend of mine and is a typical Golden Retriever. He wants everyone to share in his joy of life, and he never meets a stranger. I was at Tessa's to photograph her Arabians and this guy found a wash rag that he carried around, hoping someone would play with him. He ended up carrying it into a pond where he lost it.
I spent the next 15 minutes laughing at him looking for his rag - in muddy water! Hence the name "Goofball"!
I tried something different on this painting - I smushed some "Golden Gel Medium" around on the canvas first and then I painted the image. Makes for some interesting textures. Also I used DaVinci fast dry alkyd oil paint so this one will dry fast and won't need varnishing - in time for Christmas!

Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter— when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
