This month, our Get Dusty challenge is about the relationship between human and animal. Show us a double portrait or figure of someone with their furry, scaly or feathery friend. Please do not enter far away riders or someone in the distance walking their dog; this is not a landscape competition. Human and animal should be the main elements of your composition and should dominate the picture plane.

As usual, every member may enter up to two paintings. The deadline is June, 25. Happy painting!
