Finn - Paintings

Featured In Walnut Grove Animal Clinic, Memphis, TN


Item details

This is a portrait of my dog, Finn, that is currently hanging in Walnut Grove Animal Clinic. The clinic wanted a picture of a dog and a cat for their lobby. Instead of painting a recognizable dog, we decided that an abstract dog would allow more people to feel. connected to the painting. I felt that by using bright colors I could better represented my dog's personality. when viewers see the painting, instead of seeing a typical black lab, they see a fun loving dog. One with a big tongue for kisses and a love in his eyes. This style allowed the personality to be captures which related to a lot of people, despite what breed of dog they have!

I see the world through a brightly colored lens and I hope to share a piece of that joy with each viewer.

My name is Dare Harcourt. Appropriately named, I have spent my life living outside of the box. I was born and raised in Memphis until I was 18 when I attended Ole Miss for college.
After graduation, I went through some serious health issues. During this time, I began to paint as a way to work through those issues. I fell in love with painting with my first stroke. My passion for art started from a place of healing and blossomed into a love that brings me immense joy.
After realizing my passion for art, I decided to go back to school and received my Masters in Art Education at Memphis College of Art. I am currently an artist living in Memphis.
Each painting of mine is made with love. There is an unmeasurable amount of joy that I get when I create a painting. Each piece is filled with love, hope, and brings a peaceful feeling that I hope translates to the viewer.
My hope is that my paintings spread a little piece of joy wherever they go.
