One day I came into the bedroom and found my dogs laying on the bed like this:
Cheek to Cheek, Acrylic on canvas board, signed, 2001
Of course they were just begging to become a portrait. This is another of my earlier works, but it remains one of my favorites and hangs in my living room.
More recently, I painted a commissioned portrait that bears a similarity:
Tuffy & Trudi, acrylic on canvas, signed, 2005
This is another one of my favorite paintings. I guess there’s just something about dogs snuggling together that gets to me. And it’s all the better if it’s butt to butt.
