Dog Portrait: Brock

A  young woman commissioned me to paint a portrait of her sister's dog, as a surprise gift.  She sent me numerous photos to work with, and asked for a background that included succulents and California poppies.  I did three sketches, from which she chose one to serve as the basis for a painting in acrylics.  This painting took about a week.   The client was pleased enough to pay me more than the fee we had agreed on.   A win-win!
