In Vivian Moody’s animal work, she was originally inspired by English sporting paintings. She loves to do a bit of “interior decorating” with pets in their own homes. Vivian shows a pet’s character whether through the subtlety of a turned head, a tucked paw, or loving, soulful eyes as well as captures the dog’s expression, anatomy, and coat texture which gives them an enduring realism. She has exhibited at the Museum of the Dog in St. Louis, Missouri. Numerous awards for dog paintings are selection as finalist in Georgia’s South Cobb Alliance Show; Artists Magazine Competition; Arts Alive, Florence, Alabama; The Atlanta Portrait Society; and Art Show at the Dog Show in Wichita, Kansas.
