Portrait of Edgar, The Hellion

6" by 6"
Oil with a palette knife on canvas board

My friends Carol and Jim recently had to say goodbye to Edgar, their family's border collie. I painted this as a surprise for Jim's birthday and it was such a perfect subject to paint with the palette knife. Carol said "I know you're good and I'm pretty partial to the subject, but that's a beautiful portrait, His eyes are so alive, so wonderful" And Jim said "Wow-I am touched. You really captured the Hellion in all his cuteness. Thank you." Such wonderful compliments. I am hoping that this portrait will help fill a little bit of the void left by the loss of Eddie.
