I made an attempt at painting my dog. There’s something about slightly inaccurate and abstract paintings that I prefer to the lifelike ones. The lifelike ones take a lot of skill, time and effort but the stranger ones are more open to interpretation, they have things to see beyond the picture.
I don’t know why but the eyes on this one get me, I can’t help looking at them every time I walk past it. Those eyes are a bit scary, like it’s looking inside me or something. My dad also saw it and said the eyes seemed to be looking at him weird. It’s a nice little quirk of abstract work I guess.
