"Amber," 8" x 10", commissioned pet portrait of a poodle, done in acrylic on museum quality panel, private collection (THANK YOU!!). In process pics of this painting (I started it yesterday, October 2nd) are on the studio Facebook wall.
I met with Amber's Mom at a local cafe. Over breakfast we reviewed a lifetime of photos she brought along on her iPad, with her emailing them to me directly from my review. Ain't technology grand? (when it works, that is!)
It was my honor to paint such a remarkably beautiful dog for her family. I hope I did justice to her memory.
