"Mojo", 6x6", acrylic ©Kim Werfel
He too, is on a 6x6" wraparound canvas and painted in acrylics. And yes, his ear really does flip up that cutely...he's adorable.
I couldn't just paint one dog without painting the other. So now they have bookends :)
Here's Mojo's original photo that I worked from....changing the background to blue kept it dark, cool and pushed it back but brought some color into it. Blue will recede and Mojo's a little guy, so it fits :)
I continued his paws around the edges of the painting...fun to do on wraparound canvases.
It was so much fun to paint these paintings that I think I will now offer them as a portrait option to my much larger pastel and acrylic portraits....providing there's a photo I can work from and it's the head only (six inches is a bit of a challenger to fit much else).
I'll be offering them for $150 - they don't need framing, are varnished and come with a little sawtooth hanger in the back so you can put them on a tabletop, bookcase or hang in a small spot on a wall alone or in a grouping. Makes a perfect gift for a loving pet owner. :)
Now to let him dry and gift him to my sweet neighbors! (they loved Maggie-May!)
