"Loki's Bunny," 8" square, commissioned dog portrait of a Boxer, acrylic on canvasboard, private collection (THANK YOU!). Inquiries may always come to me, including requests about getting your own special Dog-a-Day painting.
A good portrait is more than a mere physical likeness. I have the choice assignment of painting a family of Boxer's in the coming weeks, and my goal is for you to KNOW these dogs through their portraits when I'm done. Not just to recognize them, but to be able to visualize them romping through the yard.
I've gotten a nice start here with Loki, and am very excited to keep the ball rolling.
