oil pastel on black paper
I really don't have anything cryptic or unusual about this week's submission. It is simply a fast sketch of a fast dog. I raised, showed, and lure coursed greyhounds for a number of years. They are exhilarating to watch doing what they do best. I have had as many as 14 hounds at one time but I am now down to my last two retired greyhound girls and I don't anticipate getting back into competition with dogs any time in the near future. I simply don't have the time or energy for all of the political maneuvering that goes along with it. If it had been more about dogs than people, I might have stuck with it a bit longer.
