This particular piece came about from an art group I started at work. Each month we do a 10x10 piece based on a theme.
April's theme : Circles
I'd created a Fido Kahlo (Pug) painting a few years ago for a Cinco de Mayo show and remembered how fun it was to paint.
I originally thought the big beads of the necklace would serve as the "circles" but decided on a graphic nod to 'sky' - small blue circles that would make a tie-in to the theme more blatant.
I've never been a series painter, but I think that I'll make an exception for the Fido Kahlos.
