Miss Marple and Friends

Another commission done! This time with three dogs on one canvas. All three dogs are close friends named Blue, Ballou and in the middle is Miss Marple. Miss Marple is the oldest and at 16 passed away. Instead of just painting their portraits as I did with the others, I wanted to include their whole body especially their toes. Their touching toes showed how close they were.
