"Pierre" Acrylic on gallery wrap canvas, 9" x 9" #20131220
This was a surprise Christmas gift for Brent (a friend of our son's) of his dog Pierre. I have wanted to paint Pierre for a long time and this Christmas season with the extra time at home, I finally had a chance! Pierre seems like quite a character and has wonderful shapes to his face. The photo above is what I based my painting on. The photo on the left is the "work-in-progress", working up the shapes to get the features. I loved the orange/red background to work on and how it peeks out of the final painting.
