A Man and His Dog

This is a commissioned piece. I never show others a completed piece before the person who commissioned it has seen it. The client provided the cigar box and a photo. It was their favorite family dog who is no longer with them. This painting will be a birthday gift to her husband.

I like that I can make someone happy with what I do. I love to paint; I love that inner warm feeling I get when I see their response to what I’ve painted.


My recent commission from my Pet Portrait job was to paint this beautiful collie. The whole time I kept thinking of the tv show “Lassie”. Was I the only one that loved that show growing up? Remember when Lassie came home? Don’t remember all the details of that episode but I know I cried. So here is to remembering our childhood. Kaylee. 9”x12” acrylic painting
