JRT pet portrait rock donation

This piece I just completed as a donation for a jack russell terrier rescue fundraiser, Carolinas Jack Russell Terrier Club, in South Carolina. I have a JRT mix, my dog Gumbo, and I love those little terriers.

I’m happy to help out animal rescues when I can. 🙂

was commissioned to paint a lovely german shepherd, and while I was working on this rock portrait, Rusty suddenly and tragically passed away. So bittersweet. I am so hoping his owner finds comfort in this portrait. Rusty was such a beautiful dog.

Dawn’s Lucy – Lost and Found

Dawn’s Lucy – Lost and Found

Originally uploaded by tagscats

This is a portrait I did for a fellow artist Dawn Thompson. We were swap partners in the 2008 EBSQ pet portrait swap, and I was late getting her portrait finished and entered it into the EBSQ Better Late Than Never Show.

This is an oil portrait of her sweet rescued dog Lucy. I loved the photo ref of her snuggled on some beautifully patterned cushions and decided to paint her as such. This dog has blossomed under Dawn’s care, I’m so glad she found her way to Dawn, for she is truly home now.

This is 16×20 oils on stretched canvas. There’s still time to vote for your favorite piece in the EBSQ Late Show, a few days left, so get out there and see the great entries! It’s free to become a patron!

Heather’s Gumbo

Heather’s Gumbo

Originally uploaded by tagscats

This piece I finished on Christmas day. It’s a portrait for a fellow EBSQ artist, Heather Sims. We meant to swap dog portraits for the 2008 EBSQ Pet Portrait swap, and both got overwhelmed, so ended up finishing our portraits in time for the EBSQ Better Late Than Never Show.

So, this is my entry and my portrait of Heather’s beautiful collie pup, Gumbo. We decided to swap as we both have dogs named Gumbo, though mine is a JRT. It was so much fun painting her Gumbo, he’s so lanky! I decided to put him on a fun size of canvas, this is an 8″x24″ stretched canvas. He’s done in oils, with a very limited palette, only titanium white, ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, and a bit of cinnabar.

Feel free to visit the Better Late Than Never Show, and vote for your favorite piece, it’s free to become a patron of EBSQ! Only 2 more days to vote on this show!
