The Niza Knoll Gallery is the type of art gallery that is high on quality and high concept. Located in Denver's
Historic Arts District on Santa Fe the gallery is about to showcase a new exhibit titled "Gone To The Dogs". As you might imagine it will showcase all types of art that depict dogs.
One of my first images made in Oregon is titled Sunday Driver (below). It was selected for the Gone To The Dogs exhibition. The juror for the exhibition is Amy Norton of the Niza Knoll Gallery.

Sunday Driver is a serendipitous image of sorts made quite unexpectedly in Corvallis, Oregon on a weekend morning. The dog in the image was waiting for his owner to return from a shopping trip at the mall. The dog is a Springer Spaniel and he casually looks out of the front seat of a Ford F-100 Custom Cab c. 1955.
The image was captured quickly after I pulled into the parking lot. I looked over and saw the dog and raised my camera and took two shots. The first was not useable. The second shot became Sunday Driver. It captured a fleeting moment and the feeling of a calm pleasant weekend morning. It demeanor of the dog reminded me of the relaxing quality of a Sunday drive.
Thank you to the Niza Knoll Gallery for including Sunday Driver. Thank you also to Reed Art and Imaging in Denver for their assistance in producing the image for the exhibition. Special thanks to Andee Thompson for her assistance.
