Gus and Boomer, 12-2014

I painted a couple portraits of some family pets for Christmas this year.  I normally don't paint animals so this is a stretch for me, but I was pleased with how they turned out.  They are not part of my spirit paintings, but are fanciful, loose mixed media using watercolors, pen and ink and pastels.  They are both 12"x12" .

'Gus', 12"x12", mixed media.  Gus is a 4 year old German Shorthair.

'Baby Boomer', 12"x12", mixed media.  Boomer is a half black lab, half Great Pyranese and is 7 months old and about 80 pounds.
