Dog Park Lover--Original Oil Painting

This sweet little Beagle is the Dog Park Lover. He greets everyone with a wiggle of the tail a skip and a hop. He plays nice with the small dogs, but isn't afraid to mix it up with the big guys, too. A few moments of blue skies and sunshine on his face encouraged me to paint this little 5x7 inch version of him. Visit my Etsy Gallery, Small Impressions, to view some of my other animal portraits.

Oh this is really nice! From one dog lover to another you managed to touch my dog loving heart!

Thanks, Linda! I am a dog lover and have had a lot of fun recently painting dogs that cross my path. Their diversity and personalities make great subjects.

Love your color choices in this. I can feel the heat of a sunny day. Really like the way you went from that hot oranges and reds to the cool blues and pinks on his muzzle.

Thanks to all! He was great fun to paint--one of those paintings that seemed to just paint itself!
