Thor


Hi there,  I painted this yesterday to give to our friends.  This is their beloved Thor who passed away a couple of weeks ago. They called him The Great Thor.  He was huge and quite the character,  when he laid on the couch he covered the whole couch. He was a doberman,  hopefully you can tell that.  They had given me a photo of him and I just painted it like it was,  I kind of liked the unusual composition. I think they will be touched and pleased with this, I think I captured him pretty well.   It is oil on a 8 X 10 canvas panel.

Barb, this is just wonderful. You've got his "wise old soul" eyes right on.

Thank you Karen, I think they will be surprised and pleased.

That is so sweet Bev,, not sure they would have called him a wise old soul, lol. He was always in trouble, stealing things and running off and eating them, ha.
