Dreamer

I used my mother's dog, Oreo, as a reference for this painting...It's not an exact likeness, but since this was not a commissioned portrait, I did not have to worry about having all the spots in the right places. Oreo was rescued from a pound and now lives a life full of love and joy in Rochester NY.

I love this!!! Thank you so much for the close-up too. I'm always learning and gleaning ideas from artists I admire!
