This is my latest commission, done for another friend. It's a painting of her dog Bo, a Shiba Inu mix who met an untimely end and who she wanted to memorialize. Using the photos she sent me, I did my best to capture the doggie happiness that he seemed to project, especially in his play bows. My friend was very happy with the result, saying that it truly conveyed what a happy boy he was. I feel very honored that my friend wanted me to paint him, since I know how much he meant to her and her family.
