Yellow Lab sleeping on a magenta couch, Calla Lillies in a vase on a side table nearby. I painted a portrait of this dog, Angus, for a client. But when I was interviewing her about Angus, he was peacefully dozing on the couch in the same room, so I sketched and photographed him sleeping. In the portrait for the client Angus is quite active in the park looking for squirrels, but I liked the dozing dog sketches and did another painting of Angus with some Calla Lillies from my garden. This painting was the first of a series of paintings of dogs dreaming.
