Another of fall's portraits included Tank, a handsome brindle coloured Pit Bull.
It was great fun to capture this tough puppy-dog in paint. From his wonderful expression to his challenging coat colour and the texture of his nose and fur, this boy came to life on canvas. True to his name, this sturdy dog while still young was definitely a powerhouse.
Commissioned by Ashley for her boyfriend, this portrait was intended as a surprise gift to commemorate the fur baby who's story ended much too soon. While it's never easy to say goodbye to a friend, Tank's spirit will be forever immortalized in his portrait. Hopefully this piece will bring about happy memories for the couple of a much loved dog.
