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!

Monet split faced fawn and white whippet puppy dog portrait


 "Monet"
10 x 8 inches / oil on panel
SOLD
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!

custom dog portrait Daschund & Vizsla Mixed Breed Classical Dog Portrait in Oil

Zeke
10x8 inches / oil on panel
SOLD
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!

BOXER CUSTOM DOG PORTRAIT OIL PAINTING

"Lacey"
12x9 inches oil on panel
SOLD
 
I adore Lacey's alert expression, sitting tall looking straight into the camera with those big, brown eyes.  She's such a beauty!  Our own Boxer, Hansie a.k.a. Baron Hans von Beck, came from a show lineage but we chose not to have his ears inhumanely cut into those awful points.  I'm so glad to see that Lacey's ears remain soft and velvety as nature intended.  I used to love caressing Hansie's ears, so smooth and velvety soft, too.
