A colorful beachball draws an Alaskan Husky's attention as he plays in the ocean surf. His wide eyes, ears, and tail pointed up convey a playful and attentive stance. Along with the splashing water, the piece portrays an energetic and lively composition. As part of artist Jeff Fleming's kinetic impressionism style, he starts his work with a pencil sketch. Then with gloved hands, he applies oil paint using his fingers. Details were later added using brushes and string. Once the paint dries, he moves the piece to his studio floor. "At this point, I whisk paint in random but authoritative strokes - a technique which replicates water splashing," says Jeff.

Artist Jeff Fleming uses fingerpainting to create exuberant portraits of dogs. Growing up in Southern California, Jeff was first introduced to fingerpainting in kindergarten. He painted through high school and college and won several art awards, including Best of Show in a city wide student competition. After graduating with a degree in journalism and advertising, he went to work as an art director. For the next 40 years, he created print, radio and television ads for a number of top agencies. "After retiring in 2019, the clouds of stress and pressure cleared and allowed me to set my creative energy free," says Jeff. He began developing new techniques focused on the excitement and energy of painting. Today, he uses a variety of methods and tools, including fingerpainting wearing nitrile gloves, traditional paint brushes, bamboo shish kebab sticks, kite string, spraypaint and splattering. While working, Jeff always listens to music, including Broadway musicals, dance music and rhythmic Hawaiian tunes.
