dog-painting-malowanyFor the month of January I am holding a photo contest!  The theme for January is Dogs, since January is my dog’s birthday month!  Post your photos on my Facebook post.  I will paint the dog of the winning photo, and the winner will get one free 6″x6″ original painting!  Photos must be your own, or taken by a family member giving permission to post the photo and allowing me to use as a painting reference.

Here are the photo requirements:

Photo should be a close up of the face, at the dog’s eye level, not looking down at your dog, but not so close that the nose appear bigger than it is.  Photo should have a good range of lights and darks, show the dog’s eyes and expressions and capturing his/her personality.  A little background around pet is fine, but the pet should take up approx. 3/4’s of the photo.

If you know other people who would like to participate in the contest and have a chance at winning an original painting, please like and share this post and  my Artist Facebook page!
