Brady - SOLD

8x10 acrylic on canvas board
Not For Sale

This is Brady. Isn't he adorable? This is the young puppy photo from Tania, who was the winner of my Pet Portrait contest last month. Her name/number was chosen by random and she was thrilled to have won.

Tania is a real dog person (so am I), and she had multiple photos of Brady. Plus she took additional ones - she was trying to capture his expression.

But it was this puppy photo she sent that caught my eye. The tilt of the head - always love when dogs do that! And I love the apricot coloring he has in his fur.

I totally enjoyed doing this painting and I sent Tania an image of it. She loves it also (I'm so glad & relieved - I always worry whether I captured the animal's personality, and if the owner will like it). I will be packaging this up to go out to her next week.

SPECIAL NOTE: if you have a pet that you'd like a portrait done of, just contact me. I do commissioned work - pricing depends on size desired. I will work from photos you have that you can email to me. Dog, cat, bird - even a reptile (a snake would be so interesting to do!). Just send me an email at and let me know if you are interested!

Love the way you handled that apricot color and the light on Brady's fur. The pinks are inspired! Wonderful piece, Nan!
