I had the pleasure of painting this sweet girl for Alex and Audrée from Ottawa. Say hello to Cracker everyone!
Now getting on in age, this small Jack Russell Terrier is a total sweetheart and a big part of their family. Having met her in person, I can attest to her easy going nature and wispy “grey” hairs.
Knowing that Cracker is now an older dog, the couple wanted to have their sweet girl immortalized on canvas — a keepsake they’ll be able to treasure for years to come.
As she gazes off into the distance in this portrait, there is both a wisdom of years lived and a forever young sparkle in her eyes. Her wonderful whiskers coupled with her layered coat give her a magical lightness. She almost glows as she looks off into a future that no doubt holds more winter walks and precious time spent with her family.
