New Work: pet portraits

Hello there,

Here are my two most recent portraits. I really love painting all these furry friends - particularly when the commission involves things I have never really thought to draw before (like civil war uniforms). Ever since I was a kid, I loved the challenge of being told what to draw and running with it. So now I get to research WWII medic tents and fancy yachts and Bruce Springsteen album art. It's pretty wild. Here are the two latest pups.
