Ruby and Daisy
10" x 10"
Oil with a palette knife on artist board
The first pet portrait commission I received was from Kathy Weller of her dogs Daisy and Ruby. Kathy is an extremely talented pet portrait artist herself, so the fact that she wanted me to do a pet portrait painting for her was totally flattering. Here are the photos she sent me to use as reference. Aren't they the cutest things? You can see their personalities coming through in these images. I think my favorite part to paint was Daisy's tiny pink tongue sticking out.
