Nothing is more exciting than being contacted by a new client in this business. I never know what breed of dog or horse someone might request to have painted or what the back story will be on the animal. Commissions vary from heartwarming tribute pieces of animals that have passed, to commissions of brand new animal friends. It’s different every time, right down to what part of the world the painting will ship to.
In December, I was contact by Denise to paint a portrait of her boyfriend’s adorable Husky/Border Collie mix, Marley. Although new to the world, this precious pup has quickly warmed a spot in the hearts of those that know her.
Intended as a Christmas gift, this order needed to be completed in time to allow for shipping…all the way north to Nunavut. A happy client and a rush portrait that arrived right on time – even Santa would have been proud of this delivery.
