To lick was one of Sadie’s self appointed duties. Sadie took it upon herself to groom the other dogs, particularly in the ears. Mookie loved ear cleanings. I enjoyed the visual counterpoint.
Dog Studies, Mookie Wilson in snow, black acrylic on prepared boards, 2007, 9″ x 4 ½” , Elizabeth Lisa Petrulis
Mookie Wilson in snow was a typical scene. This quickly brushed portrait is really a precursor to the Dog Studies series. It was the beginning of my use of black and white.
Mookie had a thick coat and was at home in snow. He loved to eat it, even scooping it up as he ran.
