This is an acrylic painting from the “Dynamic Pets Series” created in 1999 by Mrs. Yanping Lu, a senior artist from Ohio, USA. The canvas measures 24″x24″. The protagonist of the work is a small, brown Chihuahua with exaggerated and expressive big eyes. The Chihuahua is seated inside a transparent glass cup, with realistic light reflections and shadows on the glass creating a translucent effect. The background is a soft, monochromatic grey, accentuating the subject matter. This piece combines a lifelike portrayal of the pet and the cup with an optical illusion of the pet’s eyes, creating a charming and humorous effect.
