"Franky"

8 x 8"
oil on masonite


I have this great affection for dachshunds. My family had Choo-Choo, born in Bangkok and he eventually became a U.S. citizen. Great dog. This little guy posed for me in the sunshine during an all-breed dog show. He will also be included in the group show opening this Saturday at Howard/Mandville Gallery.

Wish I could paint dogs like yo do-never overworked but always full of life and character!

This looks exactly like my dog Schnitz. His official name is Schnitz Zel Naples. True story and great painting.

A great portrait of this little guy. I love dog shows as much - if not more - than I love art shows!
