Painting of a Papillon dog
Butterfly Dog
Acrylics
12 x 12
2014

I painted this little dog on a 12 x 12 canvas using acrylics. I think this dog breed is one of the prettiest of the toy breeds. And, sweet, too.

Papillon means butterfly in French, in honor of this breed's large fringed ears. This dog, known as the Papillon, is also called the Continental Toy Spaniel, is in the AKC Toy group, but is related to other spaniels.

The cards that I created using this painting are available at my etsy shop.
