dog paintings

All of my dog paintings are done in oils. The medium of oil allows me to adjust the body, translucency and sheen of the paint, therefore adding expression to each brush stroke in the pet painting. Oils can take quite some time to dry which gives me the ability to layer and move the composition within the dog painting. I start every dog painting with the eyes. The eyes show the spirit within, and portrays the distinct personality of a dog. From there the painting grows as the personality of each subject reveals itself on the canvas. Please contact me with your ideas so we can discuss them in further detail.

What My Clients Say…

Your artistry has allowed us to bring our Huck back home! Thank you, thank you, thank you. I gave the portrait to my husband last night (I couldn’t wait until today to see it myself) and he was speechless. We hung the portrait over our dresser in the bedroom and it is such a pleasure to wake up in the morning and see his sweet face and go to sleep at night under his watchful eye. You are tremendously gifted. I couldn’t have asked for more. You made my day and helped to heal my heart. — Amanda Sutton – New York, NY
