Basset Hound 8x10 oil painting on stretched canvas Animals

A lady at the barn once hosted abandoned Basset hound adoptions. She would foster some of the sickest and most distressed bassets available. Even in their condition they delighted all with their wagging rears attached to their large flopping tails. Loving personalities and soulful gazes. Love the Basset!

Tender moment 16x20 oil on stretched canvas

This painting is depicted from a famous photograph which resides in the historical museum by a Mrs. Cones (a national award winning photographer who resided in Loveland, Ohio in the early 1900's. My inspiration was the pure quality of the lighting and compositional images.

Another Painting of Emma.
She is such a character of a dog especially during that period of time when she gives you that blank stare which makes one wonder " just what are you thinking."

"Emma" oil on canvas board 8x10

Haven't painted since the holidays but getting into the swing of things once again.
This is our 7 month old rescue lab mix named Emma. She is energy plus thus the loose quality of the painting. Painted in oil on canvas board. It measures 8x10 and has the richness of gold on earthtoned background.
Thanks for viewing.
