I don’t often paint animals, but I must admit I really enjoyed making this little painting. It bought back all sorts of memories of past dogs, of dear departed Pants, & Katie, Heidi …
It reminded me of all the things I love about them – their soft dogs ears, dog mascara & eyeliner, dog whiskers, dog smiles, their rubbery black mouths. pink tongues, wet dog noses, The extra skin & fur/ruff around their neck. … I could go on.
The image is from some long ago discarded page-a-day dog calendar, saved for years in the all important source material file.
