Booking Pet Portraits in the New Year

8 x 10 oil on canvas

Oh my!  Where has the time gone?

I've completed all of my commissions for 2017 and am now booking for the new year.  I've been so busy, I haven't had a chance to post some of the wonderful pieces I've completed and am approved to show!

This adorable doll is Chupes, and sadly, I received the commission request to paint her portrait the day after she passed.  Her owner loved her so much and was so saddened by her passing.  She loves her portrait and I'm so happy I was able to do something to help keep Chupes' memory alive.

We had several photos that I used to work with for this portrait: one for the body, another for the eyes and face, and a few more to get her little mouth just right.  She's painted in my favourite style, chiaroscuro and I can't express how happy I am with how this painting turned out.

I am now booking commissions now for the new year.  I still have my special on for discounted prices, but that's only if commissions are booked with a deposit by December 31, 2017.  Please see my website at for more info!

More paintings will be posted soon, so be sure to come back!

P.S.  Here's a little clip from my Facebook page where I'm painting in her whiskers . . .
