Artistic Polar Bear Challenge: 100 Ways In 100 Days. #74 - Sunset

I was at least able to engage Brain into first gear today, so was a little more satisfied with the color choices.

Sunset Bear

This one had to be done very quickly under extremely distracting circumstances.  We made the unforgivable mistake of mentioning "going to the dog park" out loud within hearing distance of the dogs, which is akin to screaming "Disney World!" to a bunch of six year olds who are hopped up on sugar.   Only the concept of 'later' doesn't exist in a dog's mind, it's only NOW NOW NOW!  So I was surrounded by whiny, barky, jumpy, whirling, panting Tasmanian devil dogs, and painting as fast as I could was my only defense against them starting to eat my art supplies.  

Needless to say, we went to the park.

So now we are into times of the day series - I love it! Also loved the previous post and, gee, no, that never happens to me, my brain and hand are always in sync and perfection follows each and every time. Now take those dogs out - who knew you had to spell in front of your DOG!!!!!

Your bears are great but your humor is a riot...the descibing of your dogs...I could just seeeee them doing all those adjectives at ONCE...toooo funny you are!!

Your ability to be able to concentrate and produce such a beautiful piece are to be commended considering the distraction from the puppies! Kudos!!!

Thanks Deb, Cynnie and Claire. Nothing like canine motivation to get you moving. Around here, we have to spell out things like w-a-l-k and r-i-d-e and p-a-r-k and b-a-l-l. We're so programmed to do it, we find ourselves doing it even when the dogs aren't around.
