Nancy Herman
9" x 12"
oil on canvas board

While I am removing the barrel from the 'Boy with the Trash' painting and it is drying, here is the painting I did before that one.
I had a hard time deciding what to call this one, as you might imagine.  It is an odd subject but it fits in with my objective of catching everyday activities.
This girl is caught, first of all in the space.  Second she is caught in the duty of walking her dog when she would probably rather simply be roller skating down the street. Third she is caught in the civic responsibility of cleaning up after the dog.  Third I caught her, all dressed in her matching outfit with pom poms on her toes,  in the always embarrassing act of picking up dog poop.
