Mika and Atalanta

hand painted dog portrait


A ‘Larger Than Life’ pet portrait painting featuring Mika, a mixed-breed poodle. The typical canine trait of steadfastness is symbolised by holding her paw on a piece of stone. This stone is visualised as the head of Atalanta, the fleet-footed huntress from Greek mythology.

VeraMoon’s imaginative craftsmanship gives expression to every single brush stroke in this atmospheric dog portrait painting.
Just take a closer look at the weathered surface of the ancient stone head, Mika’s little crooked teeth and fetching eyes, her furry coat, all this set against an antiquated background.
