Oskar

10"x8" acrylic on Masonite

This is a commissioned painting of Oskar. I really enjoyed myself with this one. The dogs owner says this pose shows Oskar's personality. He doesn't like taking photos. When Oskar gets upset he gives this look and his nose starts to run, kind of like he is saying "don't mess with me man".

It felt good painting in acrylic again. Kind of like I was away from home and now I have returned. It was fun trying the oils again but honestly, I find the acrylics to be more fun and fitting for my style of painting. I am sure I will try the oils again in the future but for now I am happy with my acrylics.
