oil on gallery wrapped canvas

This was a gift from his parents for a young man's  11th birthday celebration. When he unwrapped it, his mom reported the first thing he said about his precious companion is, "She got the ears right."  Daisy supposedly barked at this image probably because it is bigger than her compact self.

For the Frida of it


oil on canvas paper

After doing several pet portraits I had the need to paint a humanoid.  I decided to whip out a quick study of one of my favorite artists Frida Kahlo. *phew* Now I feel better.  On to more pet portraits!

This was another fun commission for a birthday surprise gift for my client's friend.  Daisy and Chase seem inseparable in the set of photos I was forwarded  so I wanted to convey that they were "best buds".
