A Sweet Dog

6" x 6", oil on cradled panel

This is another wedding related painting.  It's a commission from a dear friend of mine for a gift for her dear friends who got married today.  It's a portrait of their dog Suki.

6"x 6", oil on panel

This I did as gift for a bride-to-be who among many things is also a talented baker.  It was so hard not to just stick that fork in it while I was painting and eat it!
