Nothing beats a saturday of oil painting. If you watch Antique Roadshow you know subject matter is everything and I spare no expense and draw from my years of schooling to bring you the best that I can do with a little oil and some time on a hot sunny afternoon.
This is Kyle’s first dog named Named Mike. He was a reddish-brown spotted dalmatian.

Early paintings often include images of dogs as a symbol of wealth and prosperity. In the Renaissance period dogs were painted on the foot of a bed to show your street cred. Having a dog was like having an alarm system to protect a whole mess of bling and let you know when someone was creeping on your love life.
Now a days dogs have so much swagger they don’t need suporting co-stars in their portraits. They run the show and rule the streets in most major cities.
Dogs in pop culture are here to stay. As long as we have them in our homes, watch people Whisper to them on TV, listen to their jams on the radio,. . . you can bet money that they will be made immortal on canvas.
