Tonight I was so tired that I’m just happy I got as far as I did on this one. It’s not my best work, but I still think this puppy came out pretty cute. This is Cletus Jr. He was a puppy when I took this the reference photo for this painting at my friend’s mother’s house in Marion, VA, but now his is all grown up. Cletus lives at a farmhouse out in the mountains and spends his days playing with my friend’s 8 year old niece and bothering the farm cat.
I might revisit this one again to touch it up and smooth out some of the rough patches. I feel like it has potential, but isn’t quite there yet. If I do any edits, I’ll post it again. For now, though, it’s time to go to sleep, and tomorrow is another day and another painting!
