Figaro is a very sweet dog, a friend of my pooch's, Oliver. Figaro's owner is a relatively new friend of mine---and such a delight. This painting may need a little tweaking as Figaro is mostly black and the shine on his beautiful coat is difficult to determine from my photos. I have spent a lot of time with him---he is a Personality Plus little guy, and of course Oliver always knows when I have visited him. I love this pose with the ears in different positions, one up and one down---a classic Figaro!
