|Carmello, 8x8" oil on panel|
Recently I created a pet potrait for a friend of mine. It was meant to be part of the '30 paintings in 30 days" challenge. Go figure, life goes on and I keep painting even when not directly inspired by a challenge. Carmello is a dauschund poodle mix & is love itself. He is my doggie's friend & Bubba don't like anybody!
Carmello simply runs his corner of our subdivision. On the weekends we have "small dog conferences" where those of us with small dogs tend to meet and chat during mid day walks. I will really miss this once winter sets in.

|Opaque colors go over the transparents|
|I may tweak it a little more, but his spirit is captured.|
I am grateful for the many blessings of my life as it is today.
