Meet Mini Mason, the Golden Retriever...Painting in Oil

"Mini Mason," 3"x 4", oil on stretched canvas (nfs)

This is a
small piece I completed for one of the winners randomly chosen from my 1st Blog Art Giveaway a few weeks back...this is Mason, an adorable Golden Retriever from "Who Says Dogs Don't Blog...the Day and the Life of Mason Dixie." It was a bit of a challenge to get enough detail into something so small, but after some 3 years of doing ACEO, miniature style paintings I hope it is at least a fairly good likeness to her! :o)
