I decided to stop being too serious for a while :D:D:D
It's pastel on A4 paper. Sorry for poor colors but I had a 12 pastel set only.
P.S. They always like my works :D

Haa! cute :) But you didn't introduce them to us and look how the yellow one is staring at us with anticipation and curiocity!
(..of course, he/she could be just absent minded, I guess..)

Yellow puppy's name is Toby, the other one has no name, maybe you can suggest :D

something with an "o" and a "b" comes in mind because he seems heavy and those letters (at least on my mind) imply "heavy". How about "Boris" ?... tobby and boris (or varis - with the accentuation on the "i"- in greek this word means "heavy")

..odd discussion! :D

Why is it odd :confused: :D
Boris... a Russian name. OK I like it :D
I have the same feeling-visual forms are often associated with certain combinations of sounds in my mind.

I like Toby, he is cute. I could only see one ear of Boris. :D

He has two ears, but almost all of the other one is behind his head :D
I didn't think this funny pastel is going to be such a hit:D

Forms and sound are somehow binded, that is true.
Like an mp3 player that has a small window showing shapes created that dance around to the rythm of the music. Now that is a nice project for one to work on! Make a series of paintings based on music!
My kisses to Boris! ;)

Really interesting. I'll think about it.
There is a web-site www.1art.com by Alexei Antonov.
He teaches old masters' techniques and says "Stop loving modern music. Love classical music" :D
I'll tell Boris about the kisses. What about a little one for me? :D:D:D

proves nothing is innocent.

Hi Jerry,
Thank you, but what do you mean by "Nothing is innocent" here?

I just couldn't trust a puppy yesterday, I am slightly more resigned today
I like the work tho
