Kerry Blue Terrier and Dalmatian on a striped couch. A double portrait on the couch. The clients had no preference of pose or setting. They had a lovely home on Capital Hill in Seattle, but I chose to put the dogs on "their" couch which lived in the daylight basement. One could hardly ask for a more color perfect match for a painting, a black dog and a black and white dog. I got to use lavendar!
