"Toto Too"

My entry for May's Nibblefest Art Contest (NFAC), the theme being "Pet Animals", entitled "Toto Too", features a wee portrait painted in loving tribute to what surely be one of the most beloved pets in literary and cinematic history, "Toto", from the 'Wizard of Oz'....

Painted in oils upon a 5 x 7.25" found oval wooden plaque

My entry for this month's Nibblefest probably doesn't need all that much intro.  With a straightforward theme like "Pet Animals", it wasn't such a stretch to think up some of my favorite pop-cultural pets.  And so here we have dear little "Toto", from the movie 'Wizard of Oz', along with his mistress, Dorothy Gale.  Dorothy has a few iconic "Oz" elements in her background: a Tornado, the Yellow Brick Road..., in addition to a Rainbow, as painted upon and following the sides of the oval plaque. (See photos for side shots)....

Here's hoping you enjoy my entry as much as I did painting it...!
