Miles


Miles

acrylic on gessoboard

This was a commissioned Christmas present. 

         "When Miles, a majestic dachshund-beagle mix, was first adopted in January of 2006, he had no idea he would grow to love playing ball so much. In fact, he didn’t even know how to play! Thankfully for Miles, that didn’t last long. His human got down on all fours and played with dog toys to show him how it’s done, and in no time playing became Miles’s favorite activity. Miles loves all toys, especially those that squeak, have stuffing to pull out, or resemble small creatures. Out of all of the choices, however, the ball is his favorite and, to this day, Miles and the ball are inseparable. Miles is well-loved and lives comfortably in Portland, Oregon, where his human pays his rent, takes him on long walks, and throws the ball for him tirelessly!"

Love the vertical lines that are reflected in Miles' head. It makes the composition more than a dog portrait for me. Beautiful.
