Daily Painting Pet Portrait, "One Fine Dog"



"Bo" 11X14 Oil on Linen Panel
Commissioned by the Owner

Yes, I do dogs!!! (and cats, too.) If you would like to have a portrait of yours, please email me.

My original intention was to paint the background. Bo was leaning across the arm of a green leather chair. But as I painted Bo, the chair disappeared....after all, the painting is about Bo and not the chair. Sometimes the subject directs the finished piece. That is definitely what happened here.

Larry,
So nice of you to remark on Bo's portrait. Your "instructors" viewpoint is much appreciated. The owner of this one is very happy with it.... which makes me happy.
I admired your White Tail deer also.
Thanks...Cheryl
