These dog portraits are commission pieces, while I was an undergrad student I had finished my final touches on my thesis work. I needed something to paint, it was around the holiday season and I had painted some dogs in santa hats. I found I really enjoyed painting animals, specifically dogs in a quirky way. These portraits are very recent, 2017. If anyone is interesting in commissioning a portrait of their pet, reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
