Double Dog Dare

Good morning from my studio in East Nashville. It’s another sunny spring-like day. I hope everyone is having a great day so far, and that you get to enjoy the sunshine.

Here’s another one from the Christmas commissions. This was commissioned as a present for a friend. The two pups were actually in that pose in the reference photo. They are apparently the best of buddies.

But I did, as requested, make them symbolic opponents, since I added the UT logo to the collar of the pup on the left and the Mizzou lo the collar of the pup on the right. I understand the joke, and the portraits, were well received.

Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoy the paintings. Stay safe and well.
