hank



Every time I hear the name Hank I think of a Saturday Night Live skit that featured Chris Farley and Adam Sandler. They played an elderly couple and Chris Farley was the wife who would read menus to her husband Hank. Funny!
This Hank is quite a beauty. I am going to test my technical skills and add the photo that I painted from. He is sitting in a dog baby bed. This painting has to make you smile. This is painted on an 11 x 14" gallery wrap canvas and is a Christmas surprise for a friend's son.

  2. Oh wow, I've missed these recent dogs and this guy might be the best of the lot...they're terrific! This guy feels so sculptural and the warm browns are a wonderful mix.
