Another holiday commission, I was asked by Haley to paint a portrait of her parent’s beloved “other child” as a surprise Christmas gift. At just 11 months old, Rugby has all the makings of a genuine heart stealer. His adorable mug coupled with his “full of beans” personality make for a truly loveable fur baby. Even though he’s growing out of his baby face (and gaining more wrinkles!), this special portrait will forever pay tribute to his early puppy days.
