Lately, everything has been going to the dogs....but in the very best way. A myriad of dog portrait requests has left me painting puppies left and right. Those of you who are horse lovers and following my work, fear not. A very special (and large!) pony project is coming up soon.
One of my many recent dog portrait commissions included this handsom fellow. With a wonderful, bright expression and big kind eyes, how can anyone hold back a smile after seeing this happy face? Gifted over Christmas in the form of a portrait gift certificate, Melissa wanted her sister Natalia to receive a custom portrait of Hooper, Natalia's beloved dog.
A resident of Austin and Texas Longhorns fan, Natalia wanted to include a branded football in the portrait. Clearly one of Hooper's favourite toys as well, this custom portrait was complete with this personalized addition.
