Portrait of a beloved Pet

It's not always portraits of the human kind that I get to paint and I always love the opportunity to paint a four legged friend when it comes up.

This beautiful Springer spaniel was painted for a lovely family- I painted their 3 sons a few years ago.

He was much loved member of the family and sadly passed away unexpectedly at the age of 7 :(

Needless to say the whole family were devastated at the loss and decided to get a painting done of him to hang next to the boys portraits

While painting him I felt as if I could almost feel his presence.. My dog is the love of my life and the centre of the family and I know when he dies there will be a huge 'Yogi' shaped hole in our lives

I hope this painting has captured 'Scrappie's' spirit and that this gorgeous boy will live on in his portrait and bring comfort to his family
