I'm hoping to paint another portrait of him soon from a lovely photo I took the other day. He likes to stand on guard, or in his case sit on guard at the front window and I got a great photo of him looking out and waiting for the mailman.

Here is today's painting. The original photo is from fellow DPW Artist Evhe's bi monthly challenge. I didn't quite finish in time to post yesterday. I wanted to work on the background, the central rose and a few details.
Some paintings just demand bronze accents, as was the case here. The second photo shows detail of the central rose with the bronze and there are a few highlights in the vase and around the border. Now I can say it's complete.
I would love to know what you think of this border style. I was aiming for the staccato brushwork of Monet and Van Gogh, although neither would have used this colour palette.
