Dogs, I just love them. Tanya paints some of the greatest dog paintings, and I was drawn to her dog paintings. Not every artist has a talent for painting all things. There are times when I choose an artist for a specific genera that I especially like for them to paint for me.
I commissioned Tanya do paint many dog paintings for me. In fact one year I ask her to paint several of my family members a dog painting. The one below is one of two that I have of Greyhounds frolicking in the yard. I just love the way old master painters depicted greyhounds with tassels around their neck, so Tanya included that in the painting.
She really seems to capture the essence of the dogs. Not every artist captures the essence of an animal. Tanya seems to get into the soul of the animal and shares it in her paintings.
