2 new commissions

I call this painting
'Three Amigos'. These dogs are all shitzhus or shitzhu mixes: Bugi is front left, Elly is in the middle and Tinker is on the right. The coloured panels in the background relate to each dog's harness and reflects each dog's seniority. Sadly Bugi died shortly after this painting was finished. He was very old and infirm. I'm so glad I got to know him, he was a dignified little guy who I considered a buddy.

This is Molson. He's a Labradoodle. His humans commissioned this painting as a gift for their new baby boy. They wanted a minimal background... an image the boy could grow up with, that would always remind him of his fun loving, energetic, first family dog.
