30 Sighthounds in 30 Days - Day 22

Day 22 - Greyhounds
5 x 7 inch, oil on panel

This is my favorite pair of greyhound brothers - Bully and Nelson. It was a challenge to place two dogs in this small format, but I wanted to see if I could do it. I love how they sort of merge into each other - it symbolizes their strong bond perfectly.

I love this painting. Your composition and earthy colors are perfect. I'm surprised you were able to fit so much into such a small space.

Thanks ladies, I'm really happy with how this one turned out being such a small format. I am getting the urge to do some larger paintings now, however (lol).
And yes, its a very sweet story about these two...
