Tuesday Pet Portrait

Good morning.  Hope everyone had a great weekend.  I’ve been down with a bad cold since Friday, coughing and sneezing.  Reduced to binge watching “The Walking Dead,” which is a great series and pretty much describes how I feel.  Anyway, here’s today’s pet portrait.  This is Moose, a beautiful Bernese Mountain dog.  Sadly, this is a memorial portrait.  He was such a great guy, I’m told, and you can definitely see that in his face.  Again, always sad when it’s a memorial but honored to create a portrait that will last forever.

Here’s the last of the series I did for a family.  Keeping with the classical names, these guys are Spartacus and Maximus.  They are really noble fellows, and I tried to capture that stoic and somewhat aristocratic look.  They really are great looking dogs, and like all my pet portraits, it was a delight to paint them.  Have a great weekend, enjoy, and see you next week.

Good morning.  I hope everyone is doing well, and if you’re on the east coast, that you survived the snow storm.  Here’s Tuesday’s pet portrait of Ivanhoe, a really cute guy if there ever was one.  He has such a sweet face, it made painting his portrait so much fun.  I understand it made a great Christmas gift, so that’s all good.  Enjoy, and thanks.

Here’s another new portrait that was a Christmas present for a family.  This is Percival, and he is a really elegant pup.  I thought he looked so regal, and that his name fit so well, that I had a lot of fun painting him.  I understand the present was well received, so another happy family.  Enjoy, have a great weekend and stay warm during the arctic blast.

Happy New Year and New Pet Portraits

Happy New Year and New Pet Portraits

Happy New Year to everyone.  I hope you had a good celebration.  It was very cold here, so the celebration was being at home with the fireplace going.  Actually, not a bad way to ring in the New Year.  As indicated before the holiday, I worked on a number of commission pet portraits for Christmas presents.  Now that they have all been given out, I can start posting them.  This is Jebidiah, who unfortunately passed away while I was working on the painting.  I thought him a beautiful pup, and was very saddened to hear of his passing.  I was also honored to do the memorial for him.  I sincerely hope it helped his family in their grief.  Again, Happy New Year and more to come in the near future.

Here’s the last archive until after the new year.  I’ll be working some the week between Christmas and New Years, but will also be taking some time off, so no posts until after January 1.  I wish each and every one a very Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and a Happy Holiday for whatever your tradition may be.  Thank you for following my work this year, and I look forward to next year with you.

Well, it’s coming down to the wire.  I have two more almost done, two to start and some big projects that will have to go over into the new year.  It’s been pretty wild, but mostly fun.  In the new year I’ll have a bunch of new paintings to show, but for now it’s still the archives.  Hope you enjoy, and will be back Thursday.
