"Dog Day Afternoon, VI"

12" x 6" OR 6" x 6", Oil on Gessoed Masonite

This is painting #6, the finale in my 'Dog Day Afternoon' series. I was going through my supplies today trying to find a wider board to paint these two dogs on. I put two 6" x 6" boards together to estimate a size I might want to use, when I thought of painting each dog on its own board in a way that would complement each other, like a set or dyptych. They can either be displayed together, maybe on an easel, bookshelf or mantel; or, each could be framed separately. Let me know what you think about it!
