I do not know how it happened but I seem to be having a load of requests to paint dogs. Now let me say that I have nothing against either dogs or painting them. On the contrary I have a great love of dogs. Painting them is never easy because each dog has something that the owner wants to see in the finished painting. It is not enough just to paint the animal there has to be something of the personality of the dog captured also.
Dogs are like people they are all very different. I am not at all familiar with the traits of cats but I suspect they are very similar. After all what are those two animals? They are the greatest exploiters of the man species. What other animals to the same extent manage to get a warm bed and daily feeding and walks for loyalty in return? Very clever animals no more having to go out and fight and hunt for food it come provided out of a can or bag as and when required.
Let me share with you two true and yet amusing stories about dogs.
