Hello artlovers!

What.A.Heat.
Is anyone else melting?! It is so hot and dry here in the south-west of Germany, that you can't stay outside, except on very early morning or at night. I'm a person who prefers summer, but this heat is just too much. I wish it would rain a little bit, our nature is suffering...

However, I don't have any new art to show you, I am working on some illustrations for a personal project. So I decided to show you some of my custom dog portraits today.

I love painting dogs! I think that each animal is unique and special, and it is always an honour to portrait them.
I especially love painting their eyes. No idea why. :)

I don't believe that some dog breeds are more dangerous than others. I think it is all about how you treat them. Every dog deserves a loving family and a good home. If you think about getting a dog - adopt one! There are so many wonderful dogs waiting at the pet shelters worldwide. All the dogs we had in the past (almost) 40 years were adopted/rescued and we have never regretted it.

It doesn't happen often that I paint portraits with other paints, but this portrait of Jule is a pastel pencil drawing on black paper. This was a gift for good friends. Jule is a funny little Parson Russel Terrier :)

Wishing you all a creative & colourful week, and stay safe from the heat and the wildfires!
