Frank

Frank (now named Jett in his adopted home), what can I say about this sweet little boy…….

My former foster now forever staring in his portrait for me to oogle over!! Not sure if I would even sell this one to his new mommy yet! I just love it and of course the subject matter to boot!

This one is a 20×20 gallery edged canvas.

The importance of a good photo and pose

It makes the world of difference in my paintings when a client gets me some good quality closeups with a great expression.
Makes the artwork more captivating to look at!

Here is an example.
I am now painting Frank the Papillon and you can see how with his head tilt and looking directly at the camera it captures his spirit! 🙂
