Pets Portraits: Dog Portraits

Family Pets

Wind Runner's portrait was a breakthrough for me in utilizing color to express something of an animal's joy in motion and in life. I met John selling his book interpreting the healing powers of the Book of Revelations, when I learned he had just lost his dog. When I delivered Wind Runner's portrait to John, a gentle and quiet man, he said very softly, "I feel like I have my dog back." This is why I provide this service in addition to the other services offered.


Dusty's owner faced the harsh necessity of Dusty's aging. She wanted to honor her mare and their thirty year friendship. I completed Dusty's portrait just a month shy of Dusty's passing, and Sharon hung the painting in her office where she can see Dusty daily just as she did during her lifetime.
