A Happy Day

Group dog painting with five dogs, commissioned for a friends birthday. My friend’s birthday was last July (2017) and his wife contacted me to create a painting as a gift. They had a total of five dogs, and now only have four. This painting is to honor the life of “Sally”; the dog in the center of the painting. This painting is part of my Purpose Series.

How did I create this piece? To briefly describe my abilities, I was able to take several photos that were sent to me of each dog and imagine how they would look together. Once I had the final drawing, I then began to paint the final image, as if these dogs posed together in one photograph. I also I created my own background and foreground.

Want an original pet painting? Send me your request and some photos of your pets, you would like me to paint.
