6 x 6" oil on board
I met this dog and its owner in New Haven, CT while they were both getting exercise on a sunny day. He was a muscular, healthy looking animal with a very regal carriage. When I asked the owner what breed he was, she said, "Just dog, adopted from a local pound." I really enjoyed creating an oil painting of him and capturing his spirit and strength.
Update: to purchase this painting go to my auction on ebay:
