Buddy Lee was Tristan’s brother, and has now gone to the Rainbow Bridge. This painting is in a private collection.
This handsome guy’s mom commissioned this portrait as a gift for her husband. At the end of a long day, after his dad gets comfy in his favorite chair, Winston loves to say hi, and possibly get his ears scratched.
This scrappy guy, Tristan, was my second commissioned pet portrait. Painting dogs with dark fur can be difficult, but the bright lighting helped to bring out the highlights, lowlights, and a bit of the silliness hidden in his stern ears and attentive stance.
