An Oil Painting for Today


"Give a Dog a Bone"
6" x 8"
oil painting on canvas board
This is a new friend's dog, Jak.  I had many photos to choose from, but this one says alot about Jak - and a lot about dogs and their bones. You can see in his face, how much he loves his bone and how proud he is of it.  Don't forget your furry friends this holiday season!  They love the smallest of gifts.

Pattie this painting has a real freshness to it. You've captured his playful spirit beautifully.

Thanks Vern! This is the one thing I really love painting - dogs, cats and horses. Always have, always will.

Great colors in the background and I particularly like the composition -- the angle you placed him in the rectangle frame.
