I had the pleasure of painting the very handsome Diesel this fall, for Caitlyn in New Jersey.
A couple of Caitlyn’s friends pitched in to make this portrait happen in an effort to help cheer up their friend. Sadly, Caitlyn’s beloved boy passed away recently. While nothing can completely erase the pain of Diesel’s loss, a portrait of the happy dog was the perfect thing to honour Diesel’s memory.
A photo of Diesel sporting an American flag bandana he wore often was chosen from among Caitlyn’s favourite photos.
All in all, I’m pleased with the result of this sweet portrait. The greatest reward came in the form of client feedback once the painting was completed.
“It looks just like him, I cried when I first opened the email. IT IS PERFECT! THANK YOU SO SO MUCH! You are seriously amazing!” – Caitlyn W.
It’s comments like this one that are the cherry on top and make my job so worthwhile!
