This handsome boy is Vinny. I do love these senior dogs. In hindsight, I wish I would have taken some progress pics or video during this painting because it came together really nicely. But here are a few close up shots:

Beautiful! Do you pick a breed to focus on each month, or is this new?

Thanks, Collie! This project is part of blogger Leslie Saeta's artist challenge, where we paint 30 paintings during the month of Jan. I chose 30 sighthounds as my theme.

Vinny is just something! There's a certain dignity and definition that comes to Greyhound faces as they get over that I'm always really drawn to.

Thanks! They do get a certain dignity about them as they get older.
