this is my favourite of all the paintings you've posted on Craftster (which are all quite fabulous in their own right)!  I love it soooo much, all the references to the myth are wonderfully thoughtful.  and the colours are so yummy!

Awwww thanks! 

I've actually decided it is not finished and am hoping to finish it over the next few days (it REALLY needs three poodles).  I also want to brighten up a few of the colors that I feel have dulled a bit.  Why the "rush" to finish?.......it has sold to a collector on the other side of the state!  I need to get the finishing touches in so it can dry and I can ship it out!

I'll try to post the final here when I'm done.

Did you ever add the other 2 dogs? Totally fascinating subject matter and interpretation.

Yep, they were added, but I never managed to get another photo.  It's large and difficult to photograph unless it's outdoors.  I just never got the chance.  I still have access to scan or photograph it if I'd like, but it's located 3 hours from here.  This collector has expressed interest in the next painting I'm planning for this series.  If she does buy it, I'll make sure to bring my laptop & scanner with me so I can get a good quality image of this one. It's really SO much better with three poodles.

This is one of my all time favourites, I always check this thread in hopes of finding out there are prints available somewhere in the universe Smiley

As soon as I can get a scan of this there will be prints available.  Most everything else is scanned before it leaves.

 Gorgeous as usual. You do amazing work. Can't wait to see it with the three dogs and the next painting you do!
