This is Opie. He's painted on an 8x8" canvas, and was given as a gift from parents to a daughter in memory of their beloved family dog who lost his life from a snakebite. Such as sad story! and I just hope that this dog's pet portrait is a pleasant reminder of the great life that Opie lived with a family that cared so much for him.
I was asked to paint a portrait of Stella, a big black and white dog on a small canvas. One of my favorite sizes to work on, 6x8". Working on smaller items reminds me how I enjoy zooming in to work on the details so much. Really enjoyed working on this painting for a very nice family.
