Graceful Greyhound by Janet Burt

My dog Stella -- a mix of who-knows-what breeds -- seems to have at least some greyhound in her background, and maybe that's why especially enjoy painting greyhound portraits. Here's one of my latest paintings of this graceful breed.

One thing I love about this portrait is that the subject is gazing off to the side. This can be a lovely change of pace from the "looking directly at the viewer" pose, and I think it really captures the sweet nature of this dog.

For comparison's sake, here's a shot of my gal Stella, showing off her long nose.

See the resemblance?

Please email if you'd like me to capture your dog's personality on canvas.
