Pet Portrait

"Handsome Boy Shad-O"

6"x 6" Oil on Ampersand Gessoboard. nfs

This is our good seven year old Shad-O. The painting was my husband's Father's Day gift, for the boy is the closest being to a son we've ever had. He is the smartest, sweetest, and best looking doggie in the whole world, don't you think?

I hope you Dad's out there had a great and blessed day!

This is awesome, Marilyn. Did you take artistic license and paint the chair red or was this the actual color of the chair. It really frames the dog and adds another dimension to the beautiful work you did on the dog.
