See a video showing the  development of “Megaphone”. And another showing the process and development of “Ghost”.   Read a little more about Dino’s accident. Read about Doug in this Meet the Model post.  Back to main page for Portfolios.

DINO was hit by a car and his tail was eventually removed. These paintings were inspired by the medical collar designed to keep him from fiddling with the injury.

The collar seemed to amplify the intimate interactions between our dogs. It tickled me, generating imaginary conversations between the dogs in my head.
