"Zoey" (oil on linen; 14" x 11") sold


"Zoey" is for Winston, who commissioned the portrait for his mother's birthday.  It was a somewhat challenging project, because Winston asked me to give Zoey, a Yorkshire terrier, a groomed look.  So I used the frontal face shot of a more groomed head for the purpose, by imagining it to be turned slightly toward left.  The background colors are the favorite colors of Winston's mother.  What do you think of the result?  Isn't it darling?
