"MIGHTY DOG" 6x6 oil on canvas panel

If you have ever owned a small breed dog, you probably experienced it's "mighty" personality.  Larger than life.  In our house there are two little dogs that rule the roost, I am embarrased to say.  They bark at anything that moves and any size.  When out for a walk they are on guard and pulling us along.  On the other hand they are totally devoted to protecting and loving us unconditionally.

I love this one! You can just feel him tugging.

Dori,
Paint this one dark grey and you'd have our dog Bridget, a shizu-poodle mix whom most referred to as the "tasmanian devil."
What a feisty little dog. She's long since passed away several years ago but still lives fondly in our hearts.
Love this painting. Thanks for bringing back good memories for me.

I can feel his enthusiasm! Great job on indicating to form beautifully without a lot of detail.

Dori, great job capturing the movement in this little mighty guy. Well done. So proud to be a part of Daily Painter Originals with you.

Glad you captured him before he "got" away. Well done.

This painting made me smile as soon as I saw it! I have a little 'big' dog, too, and THAT's how we walk!

Nice tension in this one - - you captured something we dog folks deal with every time we walk - I'm hoping it's giving me nice upper body muscles- I'll let you know!
