Pet Portraits R Us

I just finished a commissioned puppy portrait of Maya – a gorgeous Great Dane. My client purchased this painting as a birthday gift for her friend, Maya’s owner. I always like to have a few paintings going at once so I’m not sitting there watching paint dry, so, while I was at it, I also did two other pet portraits. One is a portrait of Juno, a lab mix puppy owned by my good friends the Carrolls, and I also did a portrait commemorating my much missed cat, Daisy.

All three of these paintings are combinations of monoprints, collage and watercolor. I love the unexpected effect created by both the collage and the monoprint. You never know what you’re going to get, but it’s usually something good!

    How cool to paint amimals that are relaxed. I love how both puppies are not sitting like pedigrees, but like happy relaxed companions! Daisy seemed to endure being fussed over!!
