ART. Queenty Study #1. Watercolor and pencil on Arches 140# cp paper. 6x6 inches. I will be doing several study sketches before starting the canvas for a larger pet portrait commission.
LIFE. Boxers are such clowns and have funny looking faces with short noses, an underbite and lots of lips or jowls hanging down, but there are times when these dogs can get serious such as the times when Thor puppy puts his nose to the ground in search of something else to put in his mouth and swallow, no matter whether that something is edible or good for him, or when Yoshi Boxer gets serious about barking and growling deeply at some strange noise he knows isn't supposed to be where he hears it. They have strong jaws, large mouths and can hold on tightly even though they are such friendly and lovable dogs.

I've set up a new gallery page on my website to show All Available Art on one page. No more scrolling through pages and pages of blog posts.
