Big Dog, Little Dog
This is Consuelo. She is a Mexican Hairless with a royal demeanor. She needed a canvas twice her size to capture her larger than life personality. Her human, a devotee of the breed, creates specialty dog jackets to protect their skins against the sun and cold. We agreed it would be fitting to have Consuelo model one of his creations.
Presenting Dharma. She is the newest addition to Roman's family (see posting below). Dharma is a 12 year old rescued Greyhound in frail health. Her humans wanted an image that would sit nicely beside the painting I did a few months ago of her adopted brother Roman- thus the format. Although Dharma at first might seem meek, she has asserted herself and has earned a deep respect from both Roman and her humans.
