Pitbull Mastiff Cross Painting

SOLD

You know, every once in a while as a pet portrait artist, you get a reference that you just fall in love with.  This was one such time.

This sweet boy was commissioned as a gift and my client was concerned she wouldn't be able to provide a good reference.  As soon as I saw the reference for this painting, I knew it was a winner.  Everyone just loves Odie's painting and I can tell you how much I am in love with this boy's soulful eyes.  I mean, just look at those peepers!  Jeepers!  (insert heart eye emoji)

In other news, things are moving at a fast pace in the studio with commissions piling up, but I'm not complaining!  I'm also planning on some wildlife paintings for auction as soon as I can get some time to squeeze them in.  I think I'm going to get caught up and then commit myself to working on commissions in the daytime, my other art at night.  That could work.

Also, the Sudbury Women in Art book is having another show!  This time, the art show curators and authors of the book were able to secure the month of April at the Art Gallery of Sudbury.  An opening reception will be held this Thursday, April from 6:00-8:00 pm.  I'll be showing my hockey painting as well as a new landscape.  It's sure to be another amazing show, so if you're local, I'd love to see you there!
