Acrylic embellished giclee on canvas
Original Commissioned & Sold.
This very loved dog was a surprise gift by the owner's employer. I was commissioned
to paint Toby unbeknownst to the dog's owner. Arrangements were clandestinely
arranged for me, as a dog lover and photographer, to meet the dog with its owner.
After about an hour of photographing, I had enough to create this composite, which I
then embellished, adding and subtracting from the scene using acrylic paint. I put it
on my website before it was given, and to my surprise Toby's owner saw it and loved
it so much she wanted to purchase it from me. I had to tell her it wasn't for sale. But,
of course, it all ended even happier because I was told she was thrill and shocked
when she received it a week later for a Christmas gift.
