Artist's description:

A split-complementary color scheme for a pitbull. I felt this was fitting seeing as how pitbulls have such a terrible reputation on one side and yet are known as "natural nannies" on the other. This pit's portrait showed him squared off to the camera so I included the outline but didn't want to distract from his demeanor so the body was left as a thought to be finished. He looks away, ears neutral, docile and friendly, the one eye glittering with cheerfulness. I wanted to put emphasis on the title and thus let the background center around the dog's tags. A friend of mine recently lost her dog and was able to find him thanks to the tags she had purchased for him. It's such a small thing that I think many of us take for granted, but they really can make the difference between dead pound stray dog or returned home beloved pet.

The pictures of this one include a black and white of the same photo that comes before it because I always show my signature and you can't see the black on the aubergine, but in black and white (with some major contrast modifications, that is) you can see its location.

I create my paintings with the best acrylic paints and coat them in a matte fixative lacquer to ensure their vibrancy and duration for years to come.
