oil on canvas panel 6x6 inches
A dear friend commissioned this portrait of her Yorkie, Abigail. Don't let the sweet name fool you...she is also referred to as "psycho dog". She goes right for the face, licking your ears and planting her tongue on your front teeth before y' know what hit 'ya. She keeps the whole pack of five pint-sized dogs upset with her deranged antics. For the painting, I capitalized on her crooked mouth, and kept my brushstrokes energetic....like the dog.
