Sorry it's been awhile. I've been creating a few new creative outlets for myself - I will share about those soon.
In the meantime, I am so excited to post my very favorite painting EVER. Yes, I love it THAT much.
My cousin, Rich, contacted me after having received a painting of his critter from his mom. You can see his pug, Vinnie, here. His buddy had to put down his sweet bulldog, Gus, and thought that a pet portrait would be a great way to remember him. The photos I received of Gus were epic. This dog had such personality and often looked pretty stoic. As sad as I am to hear about people losing their pets, I always feel honored to capture their spirit in a painting to remember them. So here it is, both the final project and the process.
