Artist ( Description ): 

Rocket, by E.C. Kanko
16 x 20 inches, Acrylic on Canvas

From the artist, "Rocket the Basset Hound. Rocket was an easygoing, beach loving pup who liked to take his best friend Berry with him wherever he went. Berry was an excellent sidekick who just happened to be a stuffed prairie dog toy." 

Each judge said the same thing, "We know this dog." The artist took animal portraiture up a notch and made sure that viewers understand who this basset hound is and what they care about most. On top of that, the amount of detail is appropriate to the art style, the color theory is sound, and the compositional choices captivated us (along with those huge eyes).
