New dog portrait underway - Sami


This smiley girl is Sami. She is a Rat Terrier/Australian Cattle Dog mix. I had the pleasure of painting her "brother" Lyle's portrait two years ago. Sadly, Sami is no longer with us, and has gone to be with her brother Lyle at the Rainbow Bridge.

This happy portrait is going to be a wonderful way for her family to remember her.

The drawing is finished, now she's ready for paint. This is going to be such a fun portrait!


This will be an acrylic painting, 8 x 10" on Ampersand Gessoboard.

Look at that little bent ear! I know you'll do her justice.

Sami has that one ear up, one ear down thing going on just like Banjo. I can't wait to see the finished painting.
