"Patches," 10" square, commissioned portrait of a shepherd mix, acrylic on museum quality panel, private collection (THANK YOU!). Inquiries may come to me.
In process photos of this painting can be viewed on the studio's Facebook page.
(And for the record, any of you who can see a line seeimingly traced across Patches face, that is just residual from Photoshop piecing multiple scans together - it is not really on the painting!)
Patches was a quiet and pensive guy, the happiest when he was at his "boy's" side. Which he was, pretty much every moment he could be. Over the course of 14 years, they were only apart about 20 days.
And now Patches' painting will grace his "boy's" home.
They find a way to stay with us, in our hearts and stories, in our dreams, and if we are lucky, in photographs and artwork.
It was an honor to paint Patches' memory for his family,
