Adventures of Steve the Dog - "ohhh, were we going somewhere?"

ohhh, were we going somewhere?
2010 | acrylic & ink on wood box | 5" X 5"

This is a painting of Steve when he was a puppy, just six months old. That is why his head looks too big for his body, whereas now his head is too small for his body, but it's probably because his ears are too big for his head.  My husband hates when I say this, but it's true. :)

My husband put the leash on Steve and stepped out of the room for thirty seconds to grab a baggie.   When he came back into the room, he found Steve sitting there with his leash shredded.  Steve apparently was looking up at my husband wagging his tail, looking excited for his walk.  My husband told him to sit and took a picture of him and the 'leash'.  Steve really had no clue what he did, but for some reason I thought he looked guilty in this photo, which inspired me to portray it that way in this paint.
