Finished Custom Painting : Girl and Dog 18”x24”

finished custom pet portrait with girl

Some may have seen my blog from March 19 about this painting. For those that didn’t, this is a painting of a girl and her dog. The dog passed away while I was in the process of painting this. Well, this is the finished painting! The recipient absolutely loves it! And this was definitely a great present, as well as a wonderful memory. I am so glad I got to create such an important piece.

This dog died while I am currently painting this portrait and I have to hurry up and finish it so it can be given as a gift. Here is the painting in progress. It is an 18″x24″ of a girl named Andrea and her dog Debo. It is coming along well!!

Here is a golden named Winston that I am currently painting. This is a perfect example of using my artistic freedom where I changed the color of the blankets he is on to red.
