You do not see many pugs but they are surprisingly popular dogs, Pug owners are usually "Pug mad" and have one after the other, Strange looking dogs, good to paint !

by the Moonlight

This is another small painting, it is 16x11cm. I have found that Painting so small gives me more freedom of brushwork, less fuss, which is a good thing , if you paint, give it a try !
