Portrait of Phoenix the dog

My last painting of 2009 is a promised piece, long overdue! Phoenix is a great dog belonging to friends, Joanne and Tim. He is Joannes constant companion while Tim is on the road driving truck every week. For all my worrying about how I could paint a black dog, it turns out that I really enjoyed painting him!

Phoenix 8" x 8"
Now I am looking forward to getting back in the studio and finishing a large piece that I started before Christmas!
Happiest of New Years to all!
