Nyx's portrait was commissioned for a wedding gift. The thoughtful relative that commissioned the painting told me, "Nyx is a very intense dog!" She gave me the perfect reference photo to catch that intensity. Congratulations to the happy couple and their cool dog!

I got to photograph Lily for her pet portrait commission. Taking my own reference photographs is so much fun! Makes me feel like a photographer and a painter. Plus, Lily was very cooperative laying on the red couch at Gone to the Dogs in Salida, Colorado. She looks good in red.

Max's Ink Drawing

 Max
11 x 14"
ink
Max is a Borgie (Border Collie/Corgie mixture). He is very cute and friendly. But during Art Walk, he was a little to interested in everything going on around him so I took a photo of him and worked from the photo to get his dimensions correct. Then I looked at him for the details. He held pretty still if I scratched his chin with my left hand while drawing with my right hand.

Harry's Ink Drawing

Harry
11 x 14"
ink
Harry is such fun guy and full of energy. He is a Wheaten Terrier. But, he sat for his portrait like a professional model because his smart Mom walked him from their home to Art Walk. I think she said it was three miles and it was a warm, sunny day.

Raini's Ink Drawing

Raini
This is the only photo I managed to take during Art Walk of a dog with it's finished portrait. Raini was cooperative as long as I was willing to sit on the floor. Art Walk got a little hectic at times. Patrons were encouraged to sign their dogs up for a sitting but I had a lot of walk ins.

Rico's coat was perfect for an ink drawing. It allowed for some fun lines. He was also a very good, still model.
