After painting the big blue dog painting (Fernie) a couple of months ago, I decided I wanted to paint my dog violet using purple. Violet is my painting buddy and so she even knows what it means to "go paint". I decided that such a loyal painting assistant needed another painting dedicated to her. It was really fun changing the colors around too. I was thinking a lot about Picasso and how he decided to paint everything in blue for a while. And while I was painting the background I was thinking about Van Gogh a lot. I love his thick paint! And I love the interaction of all these saturated colors.

Detail of painting.
"A  painting lives by companionship, expanding and quickening in the eyes
of the sensitive observer.  It dies by the same token.  It is therefore a
risky & unfeeling act to send it out into the world."
-Tiger's Eye Magazine 1947.
