Dog Art Painting, North Carolina, Roxanne

Portrait of a short haired Chow from North Carolina, Acrylic Painting

This pet portrait was a gift from a thoughtful daughter to her mother after the loss of their much loved family member Roxanne.

There were no perfect reference photos for this pretty gal, so we made do with a single frame from a video. I love the play of light in this portrait and the combination of colors in her fur and the background. She looks simple, elegant, and expressive.

Medium: Portrait of a Short Hair Chow in Acrylic

Here’s our reference photo. It’s crooked and dark, but I thought I could use it to make a nice painting.

She's flawless. You nailed her color and I can see so much of her personality in the portrait. I can't wait for my mom to see it. I want thank you for getting it done so quickly! When my mother opened her up we just cried together because it does look exactly like her. She stays in the mantle in the living room and with family home for Christmas everyone got to see her! We are so satisfied and I know if I ever need another pet portrait I'll come straight to you!
