Oil on Linen Panel
Commissioned by the Owner
Butte is a mix between Golden Retriever and a Malamute, we think. He is adored by his owners. (oh, those blue eyes!!) And, I might add, a very nice fellow. The painting was a gift from a husband to his wife on her birthday. A birthday celebration and the unveiling of this portrait was enjoyed by friends, family, and this artist!!
This painting was done from one of the photographs supplied by the owners. Sometimes that works out well, assuming the photo has the right light and details. The jpeg emailed to me with this pose was actually a bit vague, so we had to get some other photos to give me more information. But it all worked out in the end. It is handsomely framed in a gold plein air style frame and looks great hanging in their craftsman style house.
