Labscape Chocolate Lab


I love painting Labscapes. This is Fergus beside me on the couch this morning. I keep a pencil and pad close by as I watch the Today show and have my coffee. So in the middle of Al's weather report I did this sketch and this afternoon, did the painting. The looseness, the gesture..oh and yes..the ever present tennis ball.
Thanks for looking. More tommorrow. Sheila
