Today I visited my printer to have this print made of my most recent dog portrait commission. The photograph I worked from had dramatic lighting similar to what you see in the artwork. I thought that gave it such a beautiful classic look, so I decided to paint it in the same style.
Hello there. Today I’m sharing a few in-process images of a dog portrait I’m currently working on. The four stages shown here show the initial phase of my painting process.
The never-ending snowstorms here in Boston were good for my productivity. It was difficult to get around—as a result, I didn’t go out much and longer stretches of my time went into art making. Here’s a quick look at what I’ve been up to.
I visited my printer Mark today to have this portrait of Cali printed. I’ll be framing it in the next day or two, and then sending it off to its new home across the Charles River.
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.
Today I’m wrapping up Peanut’s framed portrait to be delivered to its new home in Boston’s South End.
I recently completed this portrait of Trudy (AKA Gertrude Stone) for her adoring, obeying owner who is very pleased with it. As she put it, “Is Trudy badass, or what?”
