Christmas Commission 3, 4 and 5

I did 3 pet commissions of dogs this year. As most of you know, this is probably my favorite thing to create because I love dogs so much. I finished a horse portrait for the first time so I will show you that one in a couple of days and have 2 beautiful Himalayan cats to complete in January.

Here are Bailey and Bentley – a Doodle and a Yorkie mix

Here is another Bailey. This Bailey is a very sweet female Irish Setter doodle. I had never seen one of these but she has more of the beautiful red in her ears and in her beard.

And lastly, this is sweet Paisley, who is a Border Collie. She was laying down and giving her mom her sweet, come play with me look.

Yea! I can finally share what I have been working on.

This Christmas Season has been a fun filled time with lots of commissions. I have been dying to show you all the pieces I got to work on but couldn’t because most of them were Christmas presents. I still have 10 Pet Portraits and 3 other commissions to go. Here are some of the pet portraits.

Bentley is a Wheaton/Poodle mix, Buddy is a Yorkie, Lexie is a yellow Lab, Ruby is a Weimaraner, Sandie is a Yellow Lab, Leo is a darling mix maybe some Jack Russell/hound,

Ruby was a wonderful, loving Weimaraner who is very missed.


Puppies, puppies everywhere!

This summer, I have finished 4 custom mosaic pet portraits.  Each one has a sweet story which adds to my joy in creating them.  I have already shown you Lizzie.  Here are the other 3.

Here is Nugget.  Sweet Nugget was rescued by his mommy from a hoarding situation.  He lived his first 3 years in a crate outside in the elements.  Now he lives the life he deserves as a pampered prince. 

The next one is Tucker.  Tucker is a sweetheart and very well loved by his mom who is getting married soon.  Her parents gave this to her as a birthday gift.  

Sweet Frasier crossed the Rainbow Bridge recently and his mom’s friend purchased his portrait for his parents.  Frasier was a blessing to his family for 15 years.  I loved absorbing his sweet loving spirit as I worked on his portrait.  We chose this photo to work from because we felt that he was smiling.
