Another Pug - SOLD

Decided that I need to paint this Pug one more time. I'm happier with this one, my kids love the previous one.

Yesterday we saw this little Pug in the park. Kids were very excited and hugged and patted the poor dog for a long time.

For Daily Paintworks The Amalgam Challenge I painted this Orchid. I chose for my inspiration Diane Hoeptner's paintings. I love her use of patterns on background.
I'm afraid I chose too bright background and orchid is disappearing. Oh, well  ...

I started this painting already in February, together with my palette knife painting with the same tulips, but wasn't happy with vases on picture. Changes they forms and colors few times and decided it's finished now.
