Miniature Schnauzer Painting

Here's yet another white dog that isn't really white (see my post Dueling White Dogs for two more examples). I love the composition on this portrait - the way Gonzo is just entering the frame is very engaging.

The original was painted on a 12 x 12 square, but you can order prints in any (square) size from my Fine Art America shop.

If you'd like to order a portrait of your own special furball, just email. I'd be happy to capture your pet in color, too.

Pop-Art Style Labrador by Janet Burt

Cinnamon the dog is another painting in the series of quick studies I've been doing recently on masonite. (I cut up a 4 x 4 foot sheet into 12 inch squares.) 

I need to refine my gesso-ing process -- in some places, brush strokes where I put that background down are visible (not a good thing, I think). Still, this dog's smile makes me happy, and I love the color combination. It's a good example of the powerful way color can impact mood.

Send me an email and let's talk about your dog!
