Dog Painting, Pet Portrait, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 8x10" Oil Painting, SOLD

Today's post features a commission I was asked to do.  My customer wanted a large print of the family pet to give as a gift to her daughter.  She sent me several images of her dog Bennett.

Of course, I could not do a print, without an original painting, so we decided on a 8x10" oil.

SOLD

She chose what I considered the worse image.  She wanted a horizontal painting and the image was vertical.  She didn't want the background to be too strong and in the image, the right eye of the dog was in such deep shadow, it was practically invisible.  But........she felt this image captured the spirit of her pet.  We made it work!

She was thrilled with the final image and now she owns the original and her daughter has the large print.

Commissions can often be difficult.  It is hard to get in the head of your client, and translate their expectations to canvas and paint.  When it happens...it's a thing of beauty!

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
