Daniel Dove "Sentry"
This is an oil on canvas painting by Daniel Dove titled "Sentry"(2005). I found this painting very interesting because it appears to be the outlines of a deer or some sort of animal smelling or eating the flowers but the darkness of all the colors makes it stand out. The act of this animal is so natural, delicate, and simple but then add the dark coloring and it change the appearance. To me it looks like there is a storm coming in behind the animal but it doesn't seem to bother him because he's too busy smelling the dark and beautiful flowers.
