It is sometimes very difficult to get a picture of Oliver. It is a game for him to evade the camera. I'll point it to take the perfect picture, then at the last minute, he will put his ears back or look away. That is why his ears are back or tilted in most of my paintings of him. He looks a little surly, but that is just a facade, he is really quite friendly. This painting is on 16" w x 20" h canvas.
