Thursday’s Pet Portrait

Today’s pet portrait comes with a sad story.  I was working on this sweet pup when I was told he had been diagnosed with cancer.  During th process, this turned into a memorial portrait.  The portrait came a couple of days after they lost him, and I sincerely hope the painting helped some with the grieving process.   As I know all too well from personal experience, the lost of a friend like Jebidiah is a real loss and very difficult to recover from.  It is always my goal to help with that process through the portraits, and I really hope this did.  Enjoy this beautiful fellow, and see you next week.

Tuesday’s Pet Portrait

Well, it’s Tuesday again.  That means a new pet portrait.  I’ve got a lot of orders in already for Christmas presents, so if you are thinking about getting one done, you should contact me in the next couple of weeks.  Sometimes I think people who have not painted realistic works don’t understand how much time goes into one of these.  And since I have a certain amount of professional pride in what I do, I need to have enough time to get the painting done to my (and my client’s) satisfaction.  So, if you are interested, act now.  Here’s the third of the pups I showed you last week.  This is Blanca, and she is a beautiful white dog with amazing eyes.  Again, they were a big hit with their family.  Enjoy and see you Thursday.

Thursday Pet Portrait

Here’s Thursday’s pet portrait.  This is Jingle Bell, and this was painted from a photo taken when she was a puppy.  Such a cute dog.  She really made me smile while I was painting her.  Sometimes I wonder how I got into the pet portrait business.  Then I get to paint wonderful dogs like this and it makes it all worthwhile.  Hope you enjoy.  Have a great weekend and see you next week.

Tuesday Pet Portrait

Good morning.  I’m back at work, and just completed three new pet portraits, which I’ll be sharing.  These were a birthday present for my client’s son, and I’m advised that he really loved the paintings.  That is always a good thing.  This girl is Nelly, and sadly this was a memorial portrait.  She has the sweetest face, and I tried to capture how happy she was.  A sweet dog face like hers always makes me smile.  I’m sorry this is a memorial, but I’m honored to be able to capture their friends.  Enjoy, and more later.

Here’s another from the files.  I made a mistake in not taking better tracking of how many pet portraits I’ve done.  I look through the photos and realize it’s now in the hundreds.  I can honestly say I’ve loved painting everyone of them.  As you may know, I lost both my pups a couple of years ago, but with each portrait I feel like I have a new pup, and that’s pretty good.  Hope you enjoy, and see you next week.

I’m Back!

I’m Back!

Well, the vacation is over, and I’m back to work.  That was the first two week vacation I’ve taken in over 30 years.  I wasn’t sure if I could be off that long without going nuts (or nuttier), but it was great fun and good to relax.  Now I’m back and have 9 pet portraits in various stages to finish.  Nothing finished and ready, so there will be reruns for the next few posts.  Hope you enjoy them anyway.  Thanks, and have a great day.

Here’s Thursday’s girl.  This is Smith, another Pomeranian pup.  Actually, she and Tank are housemates.  There’s one more in the family that I hope to post in the near future.  Again, I’ll be on vacation for two weeks, so no posts until the last week of October.  If you are thinking about Christmas present portraits, please contact me so I can get started.  Thanks again, have a great weekend, and see you in a couple of weeks.

Tuesday Pet Portrait

Good morning.  As promised, I have new pet portraits for you today.  This is Tank, and she loves her tennis ball.  She’s a Pomeranian and has lots of fluffy coat, so that was fun to try and get.  Very cute girl whom I actually got to meet.  I’ve got several more I’m working on, but they are Christmas surprises, so they won’t appear for a while.  Also, I’m going to be on vacation for the next two weeks, so no updates.  That does bring up the issue that if you are thinking about Christmas portraits, you will need to contact me very soon, since believe it or not, there will only be about 60 days from when I get back until the holidays.  Thanks, and enjoy.
