my latest dog portrait, Katie, the golden retriever

by | Nov 7, 2008 | Art, Canine

A couple weeks ago, I was asked to come back and do a second art demonstration of my pastel dog portraits at Jerry’s Artarama in Raleigh. This time I did not have a family camping out at my table and chatting me up for three hours, so I was able to almost complete this portrait during the demo time.

This is Katie, Eric’s aunt Pam’s beautiful, sweet (and clever) golden retriever. I’ve actually seen her sneakily wolf down a half wheel of brie at Christmas.

I received a generous gift certificate for both demos and I spent nearly all of the first one on new pastels, some for this painting.

I am currently finishing up a commissioned portrait for a woman whose dog passed away a month ago, so hopefully I’ll have photos of Millie up soon.
