Happy Lunar New Year - the Year of the Dog

HAPPY Chinese New Year! The Chinese calendar rotates through 12 different animals as well as the five elements, with each year consisting of a combination of the two. February 16, 2016 is the first day of lunar year of the Dog(狗). The Chinese regard they as an auspicious animal, they are honest and loyal, they are our best truest and most reliable friends who can understand the human's spirit and obey to the masters.

We all love dogs, they are one of my most favorite painting subjects too. Hopefully I will get inspired to paint more dogs soon!
