Animal portraits

A couple of years ago I bought a pile of little 4"x4" canvasses. What was I thinking? I painted a couple of them, but then they just sat in the closet. I am a bit of a junky in collecting art supplies, and really have to downsize. So I made it a goal to use up the canvasses and panels I have before buying more stuff. I finished a couple of 18"x24" sky paintings a few weeks ago, so then it was time to tackle the mini canvasses. I've been wanting to do portraits of our dogs, so I started painting them. From there I went to my son's dogs and cat. Now I am getting requests of people to paint their dogs, and I am looking forward to doing those. 

 This is our beagle, Bitz, a timid old girl. She loves to escape into the woods, specially at night, where we have to chase her and catch her. What an escape artist!
 This is Kibbels, or rather was. She is running around in sunny fields in the sky. 
This is Muddles, our lab mix girl. She is getting a little grey around the muzzle, but acts like she is still a little puppy. After a speedy run outside she just needs a quick nap before she runs again. This look on her face is the bliss-look of being pet, something else she can never get enough of.

 This is Cali, who really thinks she is a big dog ruling them all. She is also super sweet and a snuggle bug.

 Cosmos the cat, soft and cuddly, and plays like a dog.

This is Broc, short for Broccoli. He is always ready to play, and if you throw a ball, you'll be friends forever. He is like a big bear puppy!

So there is our extended family. I'm looking forward to painting more pups!
