Dog Portrait Painting, A Memorial Gift to Treasure
Meet Misty, a mixed breed girl who knows her own mind and isn't afraid to ask for what she wants. Can you see that in her eyes? She lives with special collectors of mine plus several other pack members. Eventually I will have the honor to do dog portrait paintings of all of them. So far Misty is the fourth to be memorialized. I often receive commissions to do Labrador paintings and Lab mixes, so getting to paint standing ears was a fun change. Her family requested a vibrant blue background to go with her vibrant personality. Why not commission a pet portrait of your special friend or order one as a grand gift? As a present that's hard to beat and it keeps on giving as the years go by. Visit my OtterTail Lab Art website for more information and to get started. Every dog portrait I paint presents a challenge to capture the true essence of a cherished friend and it is an honor for which I am grateful.
