Dachshund oil painting

I always enjoy painting portraits of dogs. Especially ones I have had the privilege of getting to know.
What a character this guy is!
Leo is a long haired dachshund, with short little legs, the courage of a lion and a look that will melt your heart!

Beautiful sweet painting. Love that face! Your wonderful description of Leo made me feel as though I know him and I can feel the affection that you have for him. We all like little ones with courage of a lion!

I just came over from DPW to comment on this wonderful painting of Leo. I own a long haired doxie, and he is exactly as you describe him. Short legs, courage of a lion, and a look that will melt your heart - especially if you are holding a "cookie" ! Nice job on capturing the Leo's personality!

Thanks Nan and Kathy for your comments. Leo does have the courage of a Lion and you are right Nan a cookie will get his attention. Come to think of it...it will get mine too.
