JAKE by Nancy Herman

6" x 8"
oil on canvas board

When we first got Jake from a shelter with his buddy Bay we thought he was a mixed breed of some sort but one day I came accross a picture of a dog that looked exactly like he does and it turns out he is a Korean mountain dog  or Jindo.  The Jindo is the 53rd national treasure of Korea noted for their loyalty and intelligence.
Bay is a shy Chocolate Lab but they make a wonderful pair who are a constant delight.  They are devoted to each other, but have entirely different personalities.  Maybe you can tell from this painting of Bay how they differ.

The sunlight, the shadows, and then the beautiful dogs all combine to make wonderful paintings. Your work is always subtle, and very deep, Nancy. I love it.
