Pet Portraits: A Sweet Cat and a Golden Retreiver

A couple recent commissions

Golden Retriever Pet Portrait

This was one of the more interesting commissions I’ve received. The recipient: a blind man.

This golden retriever was the faithful seeing eye dog for his whole life. When he passed, I was commissioned to make a portrait for his companion. I thought it might be odd to make a painting for someone who couldn’t see it, but the recipient lived in a communal house and everyone loved the dog.

I tried to add some texture to the painting that might give the blind man a way to experience it…I hope he enjoys it!
