A Beautiful Pup

Good morning from my studio in East Nashville. I don’t know about you, but it’s hot as Hades over here. I’m fortunate to be able to work indoors, but every time I went out yesterday for any reason, I felt like I stepped into a blast furnace. I sincerely hope you are in a situation where the heat is not causing you problems.So, back to the pups. I’ve been working on new portraits the last couple of weeks, and here’s one that’s finished. This is Leben, who is just the cutest pup. She has different colored eyes, which does happen, but not a usual look. I was fortunate to have a good reference photo, which enabled me to get some good details. This is a pretty good photo of the painting, but the real thing looks so much better. I wish you all could see how they look in real life. I’m going today to pick up a custom frame for her, then she’ll be off to my clients. Thanks for looking, enjoy, and stay safe and cool.
