Westie Painting Dogs Vintage Roadster Car

My westie has gotten behind the wheel here with a friend. Close friend. In fact the title of this new painting is JUST KISSED. I leave it up to the viewer to determine who stole the kiss...her or him. I combined a few loves in this painting ...classic gardens, westies, vintage cars, topiary, and painting! I like restored old cars brought back to their original glory.

I combined my folky style in my oils...a first for me as normally I only do folk in acrylics and small canvases. There is a first for everything and now I know there will be a second, too! ;-)

This painting makes a large impression on the viewer. It's size is 40 inches by 30 inches and on a deep gallery wrapped canvas. The colors I made to look vintage so that the westies are the most brilliant part of the painting. All kinds of wonderful warms and cools in their beautiful white coats. Can you see the storm brewing in the background just like passion?
