The Dog King by nancyfarmer
Here's a little series I started at the beginning of 2006. A little anthropormorphic, but a little disturbing, too.
This is the Dog King - although of course he still wears a collar (albeit a solid gold one) as he'll never be completley free and masterless like the wild animals.
All the paintings are highly detailed miniatures, each measuring only 4x6 inches.
