say cheese

I advised a friend how to best photograph his dogs if he wanted a portrait painted.  I suggested he take the photograph outside and to get down on the dogs level.  Sounds easy enough? Not really!  I was shocked when he sent his photos back and he had all three dogs cooperating in one picture.  The lab was happy in every shot and the little white one looked like he/she was about to receive a steak dinner.  Bright eyed and smiling in every picture.  The little black and white one made me laugh because it one was looking away in all of the shots....up in the air, at the other dogs, to the side....  Maybe a little attention deficit disorder??  This is painted on an 11 x 14" linen canvas.  


  1. Love did an amazing job! And always enjoy your humorous posts...the life of an artist...right? <3

  2. Boy! They DO look happy and you captured it beautifully!
