There is something about the power of gestures that dogs possess. Their expressions and body language is so simple, yet can be interpreted in so many ways. I wanted the audience to hear the sound that evokes this gesture from a dog. I always start my paintings with the feeling of the expression and emotions coming from the dog. And then let the color, the strokes and the textures fill in the rest with surprising results. There are multiple layers of color that built this gesture, but I intentionally leave some areas alone to reveal the stories underneath that help tell the entire story of the piece. Sometimes you can see that underneath was an entirely different story that I started out with.
