Rufus - Portrait of a dog


Okay, his name really isn't Rufus but when I asked my daughter what I should name this one she came up with Rufus. Between the two of us we came up with Rufus Hazelton the Third. A pretty distinguished name I'd say. Truth is I don't know this guy but I sure do love this face. He's a keeper!

Just found your blog through the Daily Painters site. Rufus' face drew me right in. What expression - your animals all have such personality! Thanks for the good work.

Hi Deb - I just replied to your comment on my blog and I don't know if you get a notification of that so I'm letting you know there is a message there. Sorry, I'm still fairly new to this. :o)

Oh my goodness who could resist this adorable face. You did a great job giving Rufus such a personality.

Thanks to all. I'm glad so many of you enjoyed this painting. Rufus is a charmer isn't he?

What a sweet face, very nice painting. I've been painting a few dogs lately and loving it. What fun! Barb
