A bit late in posting these:
Buddy likes to steal lady's underwear... thus the composition. This painting, along with Buddy, resides in Vancouver.
This is Buster. I only had one photo to work from... as it turns out Buster lost his left eye shortly after our photo session and this was the only pose that showed just his right eye. The client let me create any composition I wanted - I was quite happy with how this turned out.
Fiona... what a beautiful Sheltie. And what a cooperative model. Our photo session must have been one of the shortest on record and every photo was gorgeous.
