Who let the dogs out

It is always interesting to meet other dogs their owners and I am curious as to what kind of dogs people have. Often, we will stop and chat while our dogs get to know one another...or not. Sophie is a 14lb tough guy, except when we see a German Shepard or any very large dog. I guess she just knows, because she will go wide.

It's true, sometimes people look like their dogs...


...and sometimes they don't.

These are fabulous, I really like the "don't". These big guys with those little pups are just so cute!

Earlier this week while wondering around the Old Port-I kept an eye out for you and your pup.
I do love seeing a big guy with a tiny pup. I have one of each-standard poodle and 'yorkie-poo'...

I love the touch of color and the perspective in the second one--beautifully done!

Good Art. Love the contrasts and simularities between the pooches and owners.

These are wonderful. I was wondering if you do these out from memory or are you working from photos? I would love to know if you could reply on this. leighbunkin@yahoo.com

They are both so well done, but the second is my favorite! The composition, the touch of color, and of course, the humor in seeing a huge guy with a teensy dog!

Love these - especially the guy with the little dog. The placing of that spot or two of colour was inspired!

I really enjoyed these sketches, especially the second one with a bit of color.

I've been so out of touch with blogging that I didn't visit here and I SO love your work...you use of colour in your paintings like the previous figures and also your line work like these dos and their owners! I think we actually DO look like our pets/ our pets look like us, if not from the back, then from the front!
