I wanted to do a painting that incorporated the crazy playfulness of the Japanese Chin while still including their heritage as royal Japanese dogs. The rascal pulling on the Geisha's cord is my little chin, Louis. My Geisha's attempting to apply her very complex make-up but Louis has had enough. Time to play!
This painting was donated to the 2010 Japanese Chin Specialty as was last year's painting featured as my user pic, to be raffled off to raise funds. Hope it sells a few tickets.
Update: August 30, 2010. This painting fetched $175 in a silent auction which is trickier than raffle tickets! Happy about that.
