"Oddfellows" - mixed media on 300 lb watercolor paper, 15" x 22". Ready to frame. Available here and at Artfinder.
It was recently National Dog Week (Day? Month?) and there were so many heartwarming pics of our four-legged friends, present and past, filling up the internet...for a bit, there was nothing but warm-hearted love in cyberspace. There are a lot of dog angels out in the ether watching over me, so it was no surprise when this odd pairing appeared in the paint. Plus, I often find myself noticing the interesting combinations of humans and their pets, and smiling at some of the seemingly mis-matched pairs who make each other's lives a happier, more loving experience. I mean, a giant would want a dog, right? Or maybe a cat?
This is another piece from the Freedom in Watermedia workshop with Stan Kurth. And yet another example of walking away without fiddling with things too much.

If you're wondering about the origins of his name, check out the song that inspired it:
