Meet sweet Sam and his beloved tennis ball. It was clear to me from his photos provided that Sam loves his tennis ball. After a long day at work, Sam's human Dad would play fetch with him in the back yard. Sam passed away this past March. I was honored to paint a loving memorial of him with his tennis ball for a special fathers day gift.
Below are the two images of Sam that I referenced. I liked the front facing view of him looking at the camera, but I felt he needed his ball, so I painted that in from the other photo.

This image of Cody is literally the day he was adopted! I was so inspired to receive this image especially on National Rescue Dog Day May 20th. This portrait was a donation to the Mainely Mutts raffle. I love to connect and donate my pet paintings to help with rescue groups raise funds.
Painting sweet Coal as a memorial to his life. Coal had to say good bye way to soon, I was honored to have his spirit on my easel and I hope it helps heal his owners hearts a little bit each day.

Such a pleasure to do a sweet little painting of Monkey. These 8x8 oil paintings are fun, quick and expressive. My most favorite way to paint pets is to really focus on the face and the beautiful unique features of fur, eyes and whiskers. Monkey was a purrfect subject.
Pretty little Sadie Mae made it to my easel this past week. I love her expression and big round greens eyes. The cropped composition of this 8x10 painting was fun for me to paint.
Divo's memorial portrait was given as a gift to his owner from a thoughtful friend. Everyone who has owned a pet knows how hard it is to say goodbye. Giving a portrait is a gesture of love and my hope is that is provides a path to healing a broken heart. I am blessed to help with art.
Trek was such a sweet pup to paint, I loved his white silky fur and his eyes full of expression. His painting was given as a gift for Christmas to some very loved family members.
Here is what the gift giver said about cute little Trek...
"The best way to describe Trek, I think, would be to call him exuberant. He moves at 100 miles an hour, but is also a very loving dog who loves to curl up with his mom and dad."
