"Lucy," 5" x 7", commissioned pet portrait of a mixed breed dog, acrylic on canvasboard, private collection (I think this one has sold - I'm still waiting to hear back from my client as to final approval). Inquiries may come to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Lucy, a Beagle-English Pointer mix, was a dear, gentle soul. She's long since crossed the bridge, but left her pawprint firmly on her family's hearts. It's so rewarding to paint departed companions, and give my clients something tangible from the years shared with their dog (or cat). This piece was no exception, and perhaps even more special because Lucy will be joining several Dog-a-Day paintings already on my client's walls.
I spent this afternoon adding new paintings to my etsy store. I've added a number of pieces that previously have been hung in galleries and various exhibitions, most of which I haven't yet shared with the Dog-a-Day group. Take a peek at the store under "Gallery Wrapped Paintings" and enjoy! And don't forget that I have a 20% off discount running right now for the Dog-a-Day paintings that are listed on Etsy!!
If you don't see what you want, send me an email. I would love to create a painting just for you. Inquiries can come to email@example.com .
