I recently had the pleasure of painting this adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named June, for Jenn in Hamilton, Ontario. Intended as a surprise anniversary gift for her husband, this portrait will no doubt double as a gift the whole family can enjoy.
Described as a “goofball who loves to snuggle, but is also super sassy”, it was clear this little princess needed a portrait that accurately depicted her sweet yet sassy self.
"Oh my gosh, I adore it! It's so cute!!! I love love love it. Can't wait to give it to him! Thank you so much!" – Jennifer J.
A photo of June, looking over her shoulder coupled with a slight head tilt was selected as the perfect pose. With big brown eyes and luscious dark locks, it’s easy to see how Jenn and her husband have fallen in love with this little face. At Jenn’s request, grey/white hairs were kept in the portrait to depict June as she is now.
Adored by her family, June (also called Juniper Jones when she’s being naughty!) even boasts her very own Instagram account. To see what this “northern pup named after a southern belle” is up to, follow @june_the_cav.
