8x10 oil on canvas soldMeet Ace, our neighbor's little malti-poo. I know everyone thinks their dog is the most special, but Ace is pretty unique. We love to have Ace over when Tim & Trish are out of town. He is a constant ball of energy, if anyone comes over, he immediately runs figure 8's in the living and dining room. He must bury everything and then the minute he has hidden his "treasure" he looks around the room and "digs" it up and then hides it all over again. When Ace goes for a walk in the neighborhood, our neighbors avoid the front of our house because Ace will make an immediate detour down the sidewalk to come over and say hello. He's a funny little guy, we like to say he's all poo and no malti!
This is actually my 2nd version of Ace, the first try was a painting that highlighted his little snaggle tooth smile, but it just wasn't a happy portrait. I felt like this version really showed the happy little Ace we love.
