Cali’s Portrait

boston pet portrait

There are just a few finishing touches left to do on Cali’s portrait. For now, it exists only onscreen! Then it will become a high resolution jpeg file, which I’ll take to my printer to have a giclée print made.

Cali is half Australian Shepherd and half Portuguese Water Dog. Cali’s owner Justin is just crazy about her, and when I spoke with him on the phone I had an overwhelming image of her as his sunshine. That was pretty much my inspiration for choosing these colors to paint her in—I wanted the image to exude that sense of warmth and happiness I got just listening to Justin talk about her.

Here are some more samples of my animal portrait work.

I also invite you to view some of my illustrative art.

Hi there. I’m artist Paula Ogier. In this blog I write about about new works, projects in process, life as a working artist, life in Boston, and inspirations and challenges in growing an art business. I live and work in Boston's South End neighborhood. I'm fond of big cities, architecture, great imaginative spaces, talking to cats, food & drink, gardening, wandering around on foot, binge-watching well written shows, and of course, making art.
