This is a painting (soft pastels) recently completed of a beautiful dog named Suzanna. She lives in another state so the painting was created by using photos supplied by Suzanna's owner.
The primary reference photo is shown below. It was not necessary to show all of what was in the photo. Sometimes less is more. My goal was for the viewer to rest their focus on Suzanna's face. There were other photos considered, but we collectively kept coming back to this one. I understand she is the family clown. One thing is for sure, she a beautiful girl.
