Valyn Enjoying Flyball

This is another commissioned 8x10 mixed media of Valyn, an Australian Cattle Dog, enjoying her favorite sport of flyball. I tried to capture her determination and intensity. I wanted to show Valyn at top speed with her legs tucked under her. I am mainly an abstract artist, so doing more realistic pieces is a challenge to me because I don't do them that often. I love dogs though, so it was a pleasure to do this.
