“Uncle Shannon paint me dog?”

My friend Saira’s year and a half old daughter has always had a painting with a cat in it that I did, and recently asked if I could paint her one with a dog in it as well (their family’s beagle, Milo, unfortunately died before she was born so I can only assume she has seen his ghost). Does this count as a commissioned piece then? She is also quite scared of me on account of the beard, so I am hoping that this little painting is a suitable peace offering. Sketched it last night and painted it just now over a couple hours of watching documentaries in the background. It’s done on a roughly 8″x6″ piece of gesso’d plywood (I told you it was little) using acrylic model paints.

You can click to zoom in, not that it’s particularly detailed…

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
