Large Custom Dog Portrait English Setter rescue oil painting Lizzie Tennis Ball Dog Bone

 
Lizzie
20x16 inches / oil on panel
SOLD 
The first image I saw of beautiful Lizzie was with her sister, both wearing tutus in my client's wedding; they were absolutely adorable!  So when she recently passed, I was was honored to create her portrait, nearly lifesized, shown here on a yard of black and white checked fabric along with her favorite toys, a tennis ball and bone.  It was a joy painting her fur with every nuance of spotted markings, especially her nose and eyes...such a beautiful and especially sweet girl.
 

People and Their Pets Custom Oil Painting retro 1970's photograph Carol and Freckles Bassett Hound Dog Portrait

Custom Oil Portrait
Carol and Freckles, October, 1973
18x14 inches / oil on panel
SOLD
 
  
 
 
This was quite a lot of fun to paint.  Working from an old photograph from 1973, I'd color corrected it in my mind's eye while painting, lowered the roofline, raised the ground level, moved the left window toward the center more, and added a third window in order to improve the composition. Such a nostalgic painting and my client is absolutely thrilled with it, saying I captured her and Freckles even better than the photograph!

 Here is the second portrait of adorable Finch.  His cute little smile and whispy fur make him all the more endearing.  Creating portraits is always such a joy which is only enhnaced by my clients' responses such as having captured his incredible personality as he was truly was one in a zillion!

chinese crested mix Custom Small Dog Portrait in Oil Finch Looking Up

Finch Looking Up!
12x12 inches / oil on panel
SOLD
Adorable little Finch is looking up from the checked carpet with such an endearing countenance.  This is one of two custom portraits of Finch which were painted in memoriam, which is always an honor for me.  Here I'd relocated the pattern of the carpet to fit nicely under Finch, which is just another of those little (and sometimes big) changes I routinely make to improve the composition from the original photos.

Dear jeanne,
I have some really wonderful news to share with you today. Taiwan has just passed a historic ban on all commercial trade in marine mammals! This is a major step forward in marine mammal protection, and a key development in the campaign to end Canada’s commercial seal hunt.
HSI and our partner group EAST have been working since 2010 to close the Taiwanese market for seal products and today we can declare victory. The Canadian government lobbied hard against us trying to block this ban, but we pushed back and we succeeded.
Taiwan’s decision has set an important example for other nations in the region and will hopefully help to inspire China to follow suit. The movement to end seal product trade is spreading in Asia and we are thrilled.
Today is a great day for seals and we could not have done this without your continued support. Thank you.
Sincerely,
Rebecca Aldworth

Beagle Large Dog Portrait of Penny Oil Painting

Penny
24x18 inches oil on canvas
SOLD
 Here is another lovely dog portrait painted in memoriam, which is always such an honor for me to help fill the void which is left when furred family members depart. Often client photos require some editing such as the case here where Penny's hind leg and tail were not shown, so I visualized and added them to complete the composition, as well as adding details in her eyes that were blurred in the original image. It is my pleasure to contribute this extra effort in order to bring my pet portraits to life.

Christmas Card 2012
 
This is always my time to extend a very special thank you to all my wonderful clients!  While some of you are still waiting for commissioned paintings to be completed, rest assured that I'll still be in and out of my studio this weekend and this week, inbetween shipping paintings, Christmas preparations, my birthday and then New Year's day.  May this year bring blessings and peace.  In memory of my father, a proud U.S. Marine Corps veteran, whom we recently lost during the holidays.

"Sammi"
12x16 inches / oil on panel
SOLD
 (Please excuse sway from digital camera; I really need another SLR.)
I love when people tell me a little about their pets so I can think about them while painting; somehow that helps me connect to them which always makes for a better painting.  When I first saw the reference photo of Sammi, my reaction was sheer delight!  Then I began considering cropping and editing the image to improve the composition, i.e., remove horizontal white moulding behind her head, etc.  However, something was lost in the process.  Yes, the result was a better composition but a little magic was lost, then I realized why!  Part of the undeniable charm of Sammi was her small proportion, enhanced by the background moulding and wide layout.  So in this case, although contrary to my design instinct, I chose to work as closely as possible to the photo reference in order to retain that irresistible, "Awwww," when I first saw her!  :o)
