I'm real happy about this painting. For me, a Japanese food theme was exciting. I thought of several different option, but when it got down to it, I thought, who doesn't like Teriyaki. It's great combination of salty and sweet, kind of like a Shiba Inu.

The only difficulty in a painting of a dog like this is their a wide variation of coloration. it seems most are reddish orange and off white, but there are dark brown ones also. So what I did is combine some of both. I think the dark patches also make for a more interesting painting.

The Japanese on the bowl reads Shiba Inu.
