My Rescue donated Portraits = please click on each image to enlarge
Dogs are a Passion of Mine – particularly rescue dogs. I am besotted by them! In recent years I have donated three portraits a year minimum to raise funds at the rescue dog shows in Andalucia. The plight of homeless dogs is particularly poor in Andalucia, but luckily there are many rescue centres who are always in need of financial aid. The portraits are much appreciated and fun to do – and as a sponsor I get to choose the winning dog or bitch who will be portrayed. Yes that is me in the photo trying to sneak another puppy home!
Commissioned Pet Portraits
When I am commissioned to paint a dog I am a happy artist! They are a great joy to me as they are to many and can be quite demanding to paint. As a painter of course I see little distinction between a pedigree and a mixture breed. Each portrait is special to me and of course, to their owners. Much of the animal portrait work I do is posthumous and completed from whatever photography may be available, but over the years I have gained valuable skills in completing work like this. So whether you have a little hairy family member who is a pedigree, a mixture, or not alive any more, feel free to contact me for details about having a portrait completed of them. (Please use the contact form on the Contact page or email me.)
