This little guy looks like he’s about to be up to no good! He just has that naughty expression. I bet he’s a handful for his mamma!
I first saw this photograph on the internet and fell in love with the tenderness of the collie, and the abandoned trust of the tabby. The original photograph is black and white. I took a guess on the colors. So far, no one has claimed to be the photographer. This painting makes you want to say, “Awww!”
I do pet portrait commissions. Please contact the Giddens Gallery if you want one. Price will vary depending on size and number of characters in the painting.
This beauty was a participant in the contest I held in early 2014 to “Win a Free Painted Pet Portrait”. She made the Top 25, but didn’t win the contest. I secretly hoped she would win – I just had to paint her! So, I got in touch with her mom, who gave me permission to paint her and the rest is history!
