Well, Miss W didn't win the portrait contest, but that didn't stop me from capturing her adorable mug on canvas a few months later. To keep the focus on Miss Weezer's face, I removed her bandana, but made sure to emphasize her soulful expression and those distinctive bulldog teeth! I also enlivened the entire portrait with bright bands of color.
Bulldogs are lots of fun to paint. One of the first Rainbowdogs I ever painted was a bully named Gracie, and I liked her portrait so well that I used it on my business card for quite some time. Gracie's portrait is also part of a book of bulldog art created by Art 4 Causes entitled Full of Bull. Purchases of the book go to bulldog charity.
If you have a bulldog you'd like to see immortalized on canvas, send me an email. I'd love to get working on those wrinkles!
