Meet Chauncey, my dream bulldog pup. He's the best: super cute without the flatulence, slobbering and overheating that would occur daily if he lived with me in Hawaii (and reality).
Dogs and cats have so much love and emotion in their eyes. I love to paint their sweet faces and I attempt to capture their personality. It is different than painting birds in that aspect. Birds have those cute teardrop eyes, but their personality is in the whole body positioning. With dogs and cats, you don't need to even see their whole body. All they have to do is make contact, eye-to-eye, and its over. I mean, look at those sweet eyes, how can you say no? All dewy-eyed and determined...
Little Chauncey is a fictional dog, but we gave him an ole English name because he looks like a real swell chap. Fancy a game of fetch?
