Because I'm a completist

Here are the other two paintings I did for holiday gifts.

This painting gave me fits until the very end. Most of the fits involved trying to make all that "black" and "white" look more like a dog instead of vague blobs on a board. I very nearly drop-kicked it all the way across the property and back. I took a trip to Nashville instead. I guess it worked.

This was one of those very rare paintings: I had the feeling that it painted itself. I truly felt as if I were a bystander, just watching it happen. It was great, even if his nose came a little too close to the edge of the board.
