Pet Portrait: "Peanut" 11 x 14 Oil Pastel on Illustration Board

Peanut is a portrait of a papillon mix.  He is a sweet little dog.  Often times he stays with us for little vacations when his family is away.  Peanut belongs to a family member. 

"Mackey and Hurley" 16 x 20 Oil Pastel on Cradled Gesso Board

This portrait was a commission done for a wedding present to a wonderful couple.  It's a portrait of course of their two dogs.  The bride and groom are veterinarians.  These two dogs were buddies from the beginning.  Mackey, the bull dog survived a crippling condition in her back legs.  With tender loving care, wearing braces and having personal physical therapy, she recovered and now walks and runs totally normal.  Hurley is a rescue from a local shelter.  He is a very happy, healthy boy and a great friend to Mackey. It was an honor to do this portrait for two very professional and compassionate people.
