Dog portraiture. I've taken a recent interest in dog portraits for the past year. I think my interest stems less than my not-so-discreet fondness for the canine species and more of the thought that they are simply less complex creatures than humans. They are who they are with no apologies attached. We usually find it endearing and lots of times, humorous. And so we give them a portrait. To celebrate their doggy selves and the important household member they've become and to honor their unconditional love.
