After a bit of a hiatus on my dog series, it feels great to complete another piece. This is actually my friend’s German Shepherd Romeo. Romeo is still just a pup – a very large one! I based this painting off a photo I took of him when we were up at Vista Grande Ranch this past winter.
After a couple different versions that I scrapped, I ended up with this one. I decided to leave the background white…which I may continue to do as I don’t like the backgrounds on any of my previous paintings now that I am looking at them with fresh eyes. So we will see 🙂
I want to paint a few more different breeds and perhaps some non-dog related pieces as well before getting my etsy shop set up. Unfortunately, now I have to figure out how to print and ship these with ease from the Netherlands instead of Portland. Just one more learning curve….anyway, enjoy!
