"Black Lab (Bandit)," 4" x 6", commissioned Labrador Retriever portrait, acrylic on canvasboard, private collection (THANK YOU!). Inquiries (including booking your own pet portrait, from miniature size [4" x 4"] to larger than life) may always come to me.
Bandit joined his family shortly after they had lost another dog. His mom says "Bandit's eyes reflect his soul and I truly believe he is a gift from God that we were meant to have in our lives." He joined a chocolate and yellow lab, making the multi-cultural family complete. Bandit had a health scare several years ago, followed by a long recovery, which brought the family closer.
Bandit's story makes my job that much harder - how do I paint a dog who anchors everyone together? Well, I started with honest eyes, and built it out from there.
Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork with your friends and family.
