Oscar, Bella, and Odie

"Oscar, Bella, and Odie"

I haven't posted on this site for quite a long time, so apologies for that. It has been a very busy year, to say the least. I have a couple more dog portraits under commission coming up so, hopefully, it won't be so long again until I post here.

This painting is of Oscar, at the top, Bella, on the left, and Odie on the right. Oscar is no longer with us, but the idea here was to celebrate the three treasured dogs of a sweet lady in Florida. Her mother commissioned this portrait for a Christmas present for her daughter...and I am shipping it off on Monday to get there in time for Christmas. All three of these dogs are rescue dogs. (Dog pound dogs, I guess you can say.) Pedigree doesn't matter when you love someone.....that's my philosophy anyway!

On to the next dogs...
Have a wonderful Christmas!!!
