I fell a little bit in love with this dog while I painted his portrait. It was done from a photograph, and for a Christmas gift (hence the post-Christmas sharing). As always, I also just love painting animals.
Pet Portraits ordered for Christmas are all completed and only one commission left to finish. Time to look back. Time to look ahead, Time to appreciate this very moment. I loved this little scene. Check out www.dailypaintworks.com to see more of my small paintings...and thousands by other painters!
I am a member of the New West Artists and took part in a challenge to do a portrait of a 'Perfect Stranger' - someone who lives and contributes in our community. I got Michael's email address, he sent me some photos, and I painted this 24 x 24 portrait. All the portraits were kept 'secret' until they were unveiled at a recent show (where I first got to meet my subject). This painting is sold.
'Wolf Whistle 2", another nod to Wolf Kahn's beautiful work done in miniature and in oil. Great learning regarding colour. Few postings these days as I focus on completing some late orders for pet portraits wanted for Christmas gifts. Almost done but I will not be posting them until after the 25th so as to not spoil any surprises. Not too much longer.
