5x7 oil on canvas

Finally I'm posting a finished painting! I loved working on this little guy's face but struggled with the background. I'm sure I will be painting "Griff" many times in the future.

Work in Progress


I've taken a detour this past year focusing on nothing but dog training and found out I'm not very good at it. I made the mistake of getting another difficult-to-train Gordon Setter. How could you not love a face like that! He looks so innocent but don't be fooled. He's living up to his name "Griffin," now called Griff for short.

This photo of him was taken last summer when he was just a little pup. What a good model he's turning out to be when he is not getting into trouble. I have tons of photos of him that I would love to paint.
