dogs by marjorie weiss

Against the clearest of skies the color of a late beach afternoon, on green lawns, the black dogs stand. Sometimes they have human company. Sometimes they're running free.

Rendered in silhouette, they could be dogs of any time - your childhood dog, the dog you don't have yet, the walk you took last Thursday. Marjorie Weiss's dogs are both that removed and that immediate in their absence of limiting detail.

She's also lately created a series of yellow dog pieces with more detail, but the same openness to interpretation. Why not go to her site and see this fresh and well-executed work?
