New painting from this winter! This was a commissioned painting for our friend Mike. I actually finished the painting in November, but as it was intended for a surprise Christmas present, I waited to post it until now. This is an acrylic portrait painting of Bacchus the dog. I've painted a lot of cool colored dog portraits, so it was fun to paint a warm colored pup!

I decided it would be fun to turn two of my favorite animal paintings into holiday cards! I thought this would be nicer than actually forcing our dog Zoe to wear a Santa hat while I took cheesy holiday photos. Yes, I admit I do like a few cheesy holiday things, including listening to classic Bing Crosby holiday songs.

We adopted Zoe from the Boulder Humane Society over four years ago. She is my running companion and also one of my favorite painting subjects. She loves having her portrait painted. Well alright, so she's not really aware that she's had her portrait painted nor does she realize that I have turned her into a blue dog, but I don't think she'd mind.
