This is a pet portrait of my dog, Jonny Rocket, on his favorite rug in the house.  I really liked the diagonal design his body made, and how his white legs contrasted with the brick red rug.  Jonny’s pink skin shines through the white fur on his nose, chest and legs. Jonny has very emotive eyes, and sometimes gives me  that sideways sly look when he is considering mischief. In this image his back legs are poised so he can spring up in a second.  {Jonny appears in another painting in this portfolio: “Max Montana and JawKnee RawKet”.}  (Painted 2015)
