Treat?


Oil on 1/8" Board. Approx 6"x6" SOLD

This is our dog Schnitz. His full name is Schnitz Zel Naples. True story. It's on his certificate. We also call him Nit, Nitz (as Lucy calls him), Nitty, Long Nose, Droopy Drawers, and Stink Mouth. These are all terms on endearment, people, we love our dog. He will be 8 this year and starting to get some gray.

Hi Mike, beautiful painting and cute story! Love the brushstroked fur technique you have here. Really nice job, and looks like a sweet creature!

THIS IS YOUR BEST SUBJECT MATTER, IT LOOSE, GREAT COLOR AND THE EXPRESSION IS PRECIOUS. JUST MY OPINION. KM I WATCH YOUR DAILEY PAINTINGS.

I love him! You've captured him beautifully, gorgeous brushwork. And I love the look on his face!!
I know what you mean about calling your dog by different terms of endearments. Our black lab x Lucy has many names too, including Juicy Lucy, Juice Dog (my fav), Scooby and of course Stinky...

Awww, what a sweet dog, Mike!

You did a great job his coat. Nice sense of texture and fluff in his fur.
