Animal Friends Portraits, animal art by S. Jordan
As tall as I need to be
2014
Acrylics
9 x 12
I painted this little dachshund using acrylics on a 9 x 12 canvas. i started this painting a number of years ago, but I was never happy with the face. Recently I placed the canvas back on my easel and finished it.

This little short legged dachshund looks ready to chase a rabbit or a tennis ball. This breed may have been mummified in ancient Egypt, but most recently was created by German breeders using German, French, and English hounds and terriers.

Did you know Queen Victoria kept dachshunds?

The cards that are based upon this painting are available at my etsy shop.
