Christmas Commission Portrait

Dog portraitOne of the paintings I was commissioned to do for Christmas was a portrait of a beloved pet who had passed. Painting any portrait is both a real joy and a challenge. More than merely capturing a likeness a good portrait should also capture the spirit of the subject. Perhaps it is that challenge that makes portraits of any subject such an enjoying endeavor for me.
