Dog & Animal Paintings
My daughter inspired me to paint dogs, when she asked me to make a painting of our French bulldog puppy, Meru, for her college dorm room. Every dog has it's own personality. When painting, I attempt to portray that dog's unique characteristics. My dog portraits are close up revealing their wrinkles, whiskers and eyes. I often time create a background color that will highlight the dog's beautiful coat. My intent is that the viewer gathers a familiarity with the dog through the characteristics I have created through paint.
I am currently taking commissioned portraits of dogs. I work from a photograph in which I can take or the owner can supply. Please allow six weeks for me to complete.
