Squirrel Watch

"Squirrel Watch"
16" x 20"
oil on canvas

This is the second painting in the Gretel series. 

I visited my sister and Gretel last year and absolutely fell in love with this dog. It took awhile (after a lot of chicken treats) for her to accept me as ok, but after that we were buds and I was able to take about a hundred photos of her. 

From a painters perspective, she is a stunning model, perfect color for my palette, flowing lines, great profile... it helps that I am a freak about dachshunds... just don't tell my terriers :)
