I have done this painting also on hardboard. This one I done for eBay.
This afternoon I asked my dog if she had her dinner. She walked to the refrigerator and gave me this look, "No, I didn't have dinner yet". She watched me get out her canned food then walk over to her dry dog food. I am about ready to put her food in her bowl when my better half said, "She had dinner".
She gives me this look, "You've gotten this far, how about a little canned food in my bowl anyways?"
