San Diego artist Dan Adams loves to paint small dogs. His paint is thick and expressive, and most pieces are 8x10 inches. A self-taught painter, he started to paint after leaving school. After viewing an exhibit of paintings by Toulouse Lautrec, he was inspired to buy books about other painters. They were and are his teachers.


Works in the series include subjects with personal connections for Dan. What's most important to him is the handling of the paint, or the artist's 'fingerprint.' He prefers to work on small canvas, no bigger than 24x24 inches. His paintings are in collections from New York to Chicago, Minneapolis to Hollywood as well as Cuba and New Zealand, among others.
