Man's Best Friend

Dog Tired, acrylic on board, approx. 12x24", 2010 $500
(scroll below to purchase)
After portrait after portrait I have ventured back into the animal portraiture. I have had several odds and ends pieces of wood lying around the studio, as I am sure every artist does, and have had several photo references of animals which I have wanted to incorporate into my artwork. I have painted several of these whimsical pet portraits just for my enjoyment and will begin posting them from here on out. In addition to being a relaxing activity, the color schemes are based in earth tones, which tend to be the most inexpensive pigments to purchase, so that's a bonus. I hope you enjoy this first of the pet series, one to which I think we have all related after an especially hard day at work. - Jared
