Pastel Painting of a Yorkshire Terrier Puppy

Vivid, colorful strokes are used to create a particularly playful image of a Yorkshire Terrier puppy. A red planked floor with colored joints sets off the puppy and reinforces the playful quality of the whole.

The expressive and visual power of red is exemplified by two of Henri Matisse's paintings; The Roofs of Collioure, 1905, and Large Red Interior, 1948. Another example is Marc Chagall's Big Sun.
