Essence of Dog


Sometimes I get reference photos of pets that are not …ideal.  I usually tell anyone wanting a commissioned animal portrait to send me Everything they have, because finding a good photo to use of an animal is tricky.  This photo I deemed useable but went an abstract route with it since it was such a close up.  I really enjoyed painting the floral pattern on the couch the dog is resting on.  I never learned the name of this puppy, so I bestowed the name MJ, after the requester. ::wink::
