Breaking Wind

Breaking Wind, acrylic on board, 8x10", 2010 SOLD

I really dig the humor in this piece. The ears of this Great Dane were what initially grabbed my attention and the colors really played off each other. Danes are huge animals, sometimes reaching over five feet in height. I imagined this particular composition resembling a window in your home. I thought it would be stranger to see a Great Dane looming behind the pane outside looking in, just over the window base.
After finishing this piece I was very pleased with the eyes of this mongrel. They seem eerily life-like when it's hanging on the wall. Hope you enjoy - Jared
