Venerable Vern Schwarz!

This project is honored to welcome aboard the very talented Vern Schwarz!   Just look at his gorgeous and simply heartwarming portrait of Duke.  Duke is a doberman and bloodhound mix awaiting adoption at Vern's local Winnepeg Humane Society.  It is a 6x6 oil on masonite and you can view it in a larger format at his website.  Please check his blog out and learn more of this awesome and big hearted artist.  
Thank you Vern!


  1. Oh, Vern Schwarz, these paintings are just wonderful! I love the expressions on the faces of these dogs, and the subtle and rich colors. Also really like the square format. And I agree, 6x6 is a good, fast size. Welcome to the project, Vern. Your paintings are an excellent addition.

  2. Wonderful portraits. What a sweet, soulful face. These are beautiful!
