Pet Painting #45 – Kinsley


“Kinsley” Acrylic on 12×12 canvas

Kinsley is a two year old Blue Merle Pomeranian.  Her mom says that she is her little shadow, following her everywhere.

I wasn’t sure what “merle” meant,

so I looked it up and found a good explanation here.  If you were wondering, merle is a coat pattern that occurs in dogs with a certain genetic code, and it causes more white hairs in certain spots, making the dog look mottled.  Blue Merle is basically  when this happens to a dog with a lot of black fur, and Red Merle is when this happens with a mostly brown dog.
