Carrie’s Painting of the Week – 10/27/09



By Carrie Jacobson

The dog park is a great invention! You take the dogs, unclip their leashes, and let ’em run. They make friend (or enemies), they get more exercise in 30 minutes than we humans could give them in a week, and you get to watch the mesmerizing dynamics of a pack in the making.

This painting is of Rocky, a pit bull pup, and one of the sweetest dogs in the DP (as we’ve taken to calling it within canine earshot). I brought liver treats the first day, and while my dogs wouldn’t take them, Rocky thought I’d brought ambrosia from Mount Olympus.

I’ll be leading a dog-painting workshop at the Wallkill River School Nov. 7. Click on the link to the right to find out more; there’s plenty of room, if you’d like to join!
