Here's Holly's exquisite china doll, as she lovingly refers to her. Still just a youngster, she's all girl. There's not a photograph that I've seen which wasn't magnificent, so I hope you'll be seeing more portraits of this stunning girl in the future!

Beautiful Zeke, whose unusual mixed breed clearly shows a lineage of Daschund in his long body structure and Vizsla in his face with golden green eyes and mauve pink nose.  Happily, Zeke is also a rescued pup!  After celebrating his recent birthday, Zeke is very busy preparing for the upcoming 14th Annual Mighty Texas Dog Walk.  He has also enjoyed the uniquely wonderful facilities at Barking Hound Village kennel that is proud to work with DFW Rescue Me offering pets "A New Leash on Life" as well as Paws in the City of Dallas to foster dogs until they find new homes.  Take a look at these websites or stop by to become acquainted with their good deeds and perhaps you'll even find a new furred friend (or two!) who will joyfully slobber you with big kisses of gratitude if you provide them with the love they so deserve by welcoming them into your family!

Chihuahua custom dog portraits painted with love

Chrissy
10x8 inches oil on panel
SOLD
This portrait of adorable little Chrissy was painted in memoriam, as are so many of my pet portraits;  I always feel honored to fulfill such a request especially from a fellow artist. I just love her rosey pink nose with fawn and white coloring, and a hint of her pink collar is so complementary. Chrissy was loved by everyone who met her, and one look into those big, beautiful eyes I can absolutely see why!
 

Two Springer Spaniels in the Snow Custom Dog Portrait in Oil Finn and Nick Best Friends

"Best Friends"
Phineas and Nicholas
Here are best friends Finn and Nick wearing their matching green plaid jackets and booties while sitting on a snow covered bench by the Alice in Wonderland statue in Central Park, NYC.  This was a particularly charming painting as it was commissioned by a daughter for her parents, who had previously commissioned portraits of their daughter's dogs some years prior...a reciprocal gift of love.

Rat Terrier custom oil painting pet dog portrait Maggie rescue

"Maggie"
10x8 inches / oil on panel
SOLD
Maggie, a Rat Terrier, was rescued by my client's daughter when she saw a photo of her online.  It was love at first sight!  So, although ill at the time, she hopped on a train and endured the 3+ hour ride to meet Maggie for the first time.  They had another pup there also, just in case she didn't like Maggie.  Well, you can anticipate the happy ending...she took both home right away!  Maggie spent the first week in her new home, huddled in a corner shivering with fear, but as you can see, her recovery is fabulous!  Love conquers all.  Look for her new brother, Buster a Beagle mix, coming up on my blog tomorrow!

"Buster"...another "tail" of rescue and adoption custom pet portraits

"Buster"
8x10 inches / oil on panel
SOLD
...and here's Maggie's new brother, Buster, a Beagle mix who is also a rescued pup!  When you scroll down to see Maggie, you'll realize that it was truly a blessing that Buster was offered for adoption at the same time.  I suspect that Buster helped Maggie recover from her intense fear, and likewise, Maggie must have helped Buster.  Together they are enjoying a new life full of love and security with lots of play time!  They're truly special little pups.  Everytime I've heard of rescued animals being adopted, and from my own personal experiences, it seems they never forget who saved them!  I just love stories like Maggie and Buster with happy endings...or shall I say happy beginnings! 
If you have a story of rescuing a pup, kitty, bird or horse or other little one whose portrait you'd like painted, please email me at jeanneillenye@sbcglobal.net
 


Darling Daisy Mae Amidst the Diasies Cocker Spaniel Dog Portrait in Oils

"Darling Daisy Mae Amidst the Diasies"
14x18 inches / oil on panel
SOLD
A beautiful Cocker Spaniel, Daisy Mae is even more adorable resting amidst the Daisies as if she'd been playing and just plopped down right on top of the flowers.  It was actually Daisy Mae's mom who suggested adding the Daisies, and I was absolutely delighted!   It was a joy painting her long, luxurious whiet fur as well as the rich shades of brown, particularly where it's wavy on her ears and forehead.  Quite a beauty and a charmer!
