You may remember that roughly a month ago, I made a painting of the most adorable bunny of all time, June:
After June's fluffy face made her debut on the blog, I got a couple other pet commissions, and the latest is from Kelly. She asked me to paint Shadow, as a gift for her husband who had rescued him as a puppy. Shadow was an adorable dog that was a special part of their family and who was greatly missed since he passed away in 2012.
It should also be noted that Kelly is a very talented photographer (she and Kristin Partin photographed Ben and my wedding) so I wasn't surprised when she sent me a truly beautiful photo of her friend to reference while I painted:
I got started right away, painting Shadow on a 8x10" clayboard panel. Just LOOK at those eyes!!
There you have it. It was an honor to paint such a special gift!
