Inside Joke

"Inside Joke"
6 x 6 oil on panel.


A friend of mine does pet photography and when I saw photos of her new dog "Douglas" I just had to paint him. This is my first time painting white fur and I had a blast finding all the warm and cool colors hidden in there.  He's such a darn cute guy too and I love the little smirk he has on his face, hence the title for this piece.

Thanks Carol, Adele, and Carol! He's definitely a cute one, and thanks again to Jinna for letting me work with her reference to paint my version of her latest family addition. I have a commission coming up for an all-black, long-haired dog similar to Douglas here, so I felt this one would give me some good practice. I'm looking forward to the next one!

Better watch it, the doggie portrait business could prove to be better than doing book covers!! I love this one!
