"Wheaton Terrier"

5" x 7" , Pastel on pastelbord.

I love working on my little dog paintings. They are a great ay to warm up if I haven't painted for a day or two, or if no particular subject matter is applealing to me at the moment. I ALWAYS get totally absorbed in them... painting them is just pure relaxing fun. I've been working alot in pastels over the past month or two.. so have been playing with the pastels with my dog/cat portraits... So, see the next few listings for more.
