I’m pretty delinquent on posting my paintings to my blog. In fact, this portrait was a commission for Beth Sanford and was a Christmas gift for her husband last year. Cirby was so much fun to pull out of the painting with those wonderful eyes and that cute pug nose. I never really paid attention to how different these flat faced breeds are until I spent time studying Cirby’s little face and trying to perfect the nose. And for some reason I kept thinking about “Men In Black” while painting and that famous line… “If you don’t like it you can… ” Love these dogs!
