oil on canvas

This was done as a self-promo piece and is hanging behind the register of a pet boutique named "fetch!" My style has changed quite a bit since this was done four years ago, but it's still sort of fun. If pet owners are comfortable enough, having their pet half off the canvas in a graphically cropped portrait is quite dramatic.

I'm working on a new piece on canvas right now while all the board and linen pieces are in the wings, drying enough for their next layer. What a relief the canvas was. Tooth is the ticket, at least this week. Back to work!


  1. I bet this painting really caught the personality of the dog. He or she looks like a real character.

  2. This is a great one, Suzanne.
    Happy New Year!
