Emča of Prague

Here is a portrait I did of a little Bichon Frise. The dog's name is Emily or Emča. Emily and her mommy live in Prague. I painted a silhouette of the "golden city" behind her. And yes, I know that St. Vitus Cathedral is not next to the Church of Our Lady Before Týn. The two Prague landmarks are on opposite sides of the Vltava from each other, but aesthetically it works. Even if painting little white dogs from poor photographs doesn't.

"Emča of Prague", 2014

Now, how many stamps is it gonna take to mail this to Prague? Hmm...
