Piper Wants to Play, 12" x 9" mixed media on cotton rag paper. I know this dog; she belongs to my friend Josephine Geiger, who does fantastic stained glass art.
I took the photo I used for this portrait. It was a sunny afternoon and the dog was happy, and I had my camera on hand. As soon as I saw the photo, I knew I had to use it; it's absolutely her, tail in the air and ready to go.
