Art Review - "Dog Under Lilacs in Downpour" by Jamie Wyeth

This week's #MuseumTourTuesday features a painting that exudes pure joy. It also includes some of my favorite things - a dog, flowers and rain while the sun is shining.

Jamie Wyeth is considered to be one of America's greatest painters, and the emotion that comes through in this painting is a perfect example of why. He has used the same reference of this dog in a few paintings, but the choice to combine the dog with the colorful flowers and the movement suggested by the water creates a powerful piece, evoking the appreciation of the little things in life that can bring so much happiness.
