Lucky Dog

 

I found this image on The Muscleheaded Blog then forgot about it which was neglectful of me especially as I liked the image especially the dog. The painting is by David Uhl and comes from an old German post card he purchased, he wrote “This piece was composed from a photograph I secured the rights to from a German archive. Hence the 1922 European looking girls, I considered it quite a wonderful find, so I painted it in a fashion to respect the quality of its time period. I tried putting more modern model type of women in but it looked wrong. I also wanted to paint it in a vintage palette to keep its roots firmly in antiquity.
