The Totem of Terror

This is a commissioned piece for my pals Olivia and Mark. I call it The Totem of Terror. The only instructions they gave me was that they wanted a painting of their 3 dogs (from top to bottom) Carter, Chewy, and Coltrane. I was drunk with artistic power!

I am 100% certain that this is how they spend their time when mom and dad are not around. You can tell by the sparkle in their eyes that they are up to no good and that is why I like them so much.

This is a decent-sized piece, 28"x40". I met Carter for the first time and the portrait of him is actually larger than he is in reality. My dogs thought that we had brought a hamster into the house.
