I'm generally protective of my client's privacy, but this commission is for a friend who granted me permission to post. I've received several commissions for dog portraits this year. Actually, more than ever. Doggies rule in 2008 .
The dog on the right has huge ears. I've painted them smaller, however, that may be his endearing quality.
