Love the colors in that. Really nice.

Thanks! I discovered color after I got married (about 6 years ago now). Copying this from the previous page to save folks some time. :P

Been laying low for a while but did acquire this Wittfooth some time ago. It´s titled Domesticated and it´s oil on 40 x 60 inches linen.

I fell for the majestic feel to it and also Martins sense for dramatic beauty.

It is truly an incredible piece. I am surprised at how floored I am after just seeing a .jpg. Wonderful, arresting painting. Congratulations.

40 x 60!? Holy fudge thats a beauty. Love the theme/title too.
Some of the flowers remind me of a Morphine album I love.

Yeah, that bottom one is great! I'm digging the Edward Gorey vibe. Who is the artist?

40 x 60! That's a lot of Wittfooth to appreciate. Like you, A, love the greyhound, but what makes the piece for me are the flowers (Martin's flowers are remarkable), and the juxstaposition of colorful and peaceful flowers, the contented face of the dog, and the all too real and depressing dead fox. All in all, a brilliant work of art.
