Crusher

This 10" x 10" painting was a surprise Christmas present from Crusher's dad to his mama.  Crusher is a poodle with a big personality! 

She was named by her papa. He wanted a manly name for his little girl dog to balance the estrogen that he had to live with, living in a house with two women and a female dog. 

This painting would be called mixed media because there are rhinestones on Crusher's tag!

The reference photo is looking down on Crusher. In person, her ears are much longer.  I have Crusher back this week to lengthen the ears, darken the eyes, and change the background color to fit in with the earthstone-painted  house that Crusher lives in.

this little painting cracks me up. It's great. She looks like she wishes her name was Cookie instead of Crusher.

I think the ears look fine, you used perspective!
