Happy holiday friends!! While I missed a couple weeks of posting here, it was not for lack of work. In addition to some Xmas fun, I have been busy painting some holiday commissions and getting ready for my Jan 2015, 30-in-30 Rescue Pet Painting Challenge (starting Jan 1, 2015)
The following painting was a commission I did for a friend to give as holiday gift. This sweet gal is Spirit and her dog-mom Jen shared the following anecdote with me:
"Spirit is a 9.5 year old Golden Retriever. She was released from a service dog program when she was 18 months old. She didn't make the cut! I adopted her when I was in university. She loves swimming, long walks and treats. She also enjoys agility and is a member of a local agility club. She is incredibly smart and very sweet."
Spirit sure sounds like a special girl!! Thanks for sharing Jen.
I believe art is meant to be shared. I am a Canadian landscape painter that works primary in oils & acrylics. I create works both en plein air & in the studio.
