Sofa Spud (Xpost A&W)

I couldn't resist doing this painting of our wonderful little rescued Boston terrier Jester, in repose. He's either running around like a madman, or chilling out. I covered up a horrible painting I did that was commissioned after taking photos myself of the dogs and redoing it. So, I'm keeping this, and a photo of the painting underneath, as a reminder to not accept crappy reference photos any more. Anyway, it's 16x16" on gallery wrapped canvas.

Very nice...although I have to admit to a bit of disappointment. The title to your post had me envisioning Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head snuggling on the couch watching a little TV.
