Originally painted with little girl in white under tree
Decided it wasn't working
Replaced here with this large sheepdog any opinions?


  1. Hello there Organized Confusion. I just love the name of your blog! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and commenting. I like both versions of the children in the tree, but I agree that the addition of the dog and eliminating the girl in the white dress improved the composition. The dog helps to balance the piece against the tree trunk, and the more evident shadow on the ground leads your eye back in, and around the painting. It's a lovely piece.

  2. love the sheepdog in the painting Angela...looks like he's waiting patiently for the kids to play with him. Great painting!!
