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!

Hi Jeanne,

This is a lovely dog portrait!
I can even see the silky shine of his fur! Great! The client must be very happy.

Jeanne, Your painting of Monet is jaw dropping gorgeous! She is one of Breeder Anne Stark's Whippets. It was fun to see the work in progress. Thanks for sharing that.

Thank you so much, Liza! This was only my second dog portrait, and I am particularly pleased with the results -- but who could go wrong with such a spectacular subject? I doted upon the details with meticulous care...and yes, Holly is extremely happy with her portrait! Thanks again, Jeanne

Thank you so much, Don! I'm so glad you mentioned "full of life" because that's exactly what I felt when painting this magnificent beauty! I had so much initial communication from my new client, and was provided with so many detailed images, that I began to acquire not only a real understanding of Holly's expectations, but of her "China Doll" which all helped me create a painting full of life and love. Thanks so much! Jeanne

Thank you so much, Mark! Yes, you would of course recognized Monet as you've done alot of paintings for Anne. This was my second dog portrait, and what a thrill to have the priviledge of painting such a stunning beauty! At first I was a tad bit intimidated with all the white, since earth tones are my genre, however, once I began the painting, I found the pursuit to be quite invigorating and rewarding. Thanks so much! Jeanne

Jeanne,

I wanted to leave you this comment and say thank you again for your one of kind, and the best yet Monet painting. Monet was breed by a lady in Georgia, and I am sure she will flip out seeing her. I hope Monet`s painting allows you the freedom to spread your wings. You are by far the best unknown pet painter. And it shows..Thank you again!!

Thank you SO much, Holly! As you know, painting pet portraits is a rather new genre for me, and to be afforded the priviledge of painting a portrait of your stunningly beautiful Monet was a sheer delight! Thank you so much for your lovely compliments, indeed! Jeanne
