Thee Amigos

This one of my latest paintings is large, at 24 by 36 inches, but I needed that space to capture the larger-than-life personalities of my subjects, three different dogs all from one family. They are a happy bunch, and I used vivid color to help convey the joy and camaraderie these pups share.
The original photograph I worked from came courtesy of Sarah A., and her dogs' names are from left, Kita, Scout and Ruby.  The portrait is an acrylic, as usual, on gallery-wrapped canvas with the painting continuing around the sides.  I love the way the electric green glow around these guys makes them pop from the background.

If you'd like to commission your own Rainbowdog portrait, just send me an email.
