Hi everyone!

I finally got the painting finished. I ended up changing the backround - at the customer's request (he wanted just the simple neutral tone backround) - and here it is:
"Wrinkles & Boo Halloween" 20"x24" Oil on canvas


A close up of Wrinkles: (sorry for the out of focus photo)


And a close up of Boo:


While I was working on this painting - I finished another Bulldog painting:
"Charlie" Oil on canvas board 14x20"



I'm also about 25% done on the (Irish setter) painting of Casey. And I will be able to post pics in a day or two.

Hope you all enjoyed looking.

Thank You! Dr. Ratnoff saw his finished painting for the very first time last night. He was very pleased and is going to hang it in his office. I'm working on the frame today and will be delivering it on Friday evening to him personally.

You've really caught a beautiful expression on Casey's face and the gentleness in the eyes.

Thanks Renee!

Hi again,

I finished Casey's portrait today. My pictures aren't the best today - I think my hand shook while taking the photos. (Note to self - get a tripod )



And one close up of the upper portion:


Hope everyone has a super Monday.
Monika

it's so amazing to see how your paintings start and all the different stages before it becomes a finish product. thanks for sharing all this with us!

Default Update

I have a sad update: Casey passed away on 7/2. Even though her owners knew her time was short (she had cancer), it still came as a shock. I'm saddened too. She was such a sweet dog. My only regret - I was not able to deliver the painting before she passed away. So, I will hang the painting on my wall while her owner grieves - then I will deliver it when she is ready.


I finished a new painting this week - a bulldog puppy portrait.


And a close up:


Take care,
Monika
