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!

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.
