I've been working on my smaller format paintings again but haven't been posting. So here is my latest. (sorry about the glare) His name is Kodi. The painting is a wedding gift to a friend of my son's whose wedding took place a few weeks ago. I've tackled a few cat portraits but this is only my second dog. Fur is still a challenge especially with the short haired variety. I wish I could do my two miniature dachshunds but they are both predominantly black and unless I get lucky with the lighting, they may never get their portrait painted. A Yorkie may be next. Lots of long hair and beautiful brushstrokes to describe it.
