Greyhound Painting on Reclaimed Cabinet Door

Another reclaimed-cabinet-painting of a very expressive greyhound.  

I think this cupboard door was originally homemade - can you see how the trim on the top of the "frame" is just slightly askew? I LOVE that slightly imperfect look.  

Here's another shot - a bit grainy I'm afraid - with a slightly closer view.

When I found this door in the attic of a garage, it was an ugly blue color with the trim painted white, and the original knob was missing.  It was a breeze to sand it down and turn it into a fun and original conversation piece.  It seems the only difficult thing about using recycled supports (that's the artist's term for "what gets painted on") is FINDING them in the first place.  If anyone has any brilliant suggestions on where I might find more, please let me know in the comments section.

This pup is for sale, so dog lovers, greyhound enthusiasts and people who use kitchen cabinets daily may contact me for price information.

Thanks for sharing my art with your friends and family.
