This is Mitzi, who lives in Brooklyn, NY with her canine sister, Marnie. Their mom recently hired me to paint their portrait, then gave me permission to use them as models again in the future.

Mitzi is wearing a jade green turtleneck sweater and posing against a snowy sky.

This portrait was achieved by building up layers of acrylic paint and coloured pencil. The head was first painted on paper, which allowed for much finer detail than would have been possible on a rougher surface. It was then cut out and glued onto a pine plaque, after which the clothing and background were filled in. As with all of my paintings, there is a great deal of texture in this one. You can actually feel the knitted stitches in Mitzi's sweater, and also the snow in the background. The bevelled edges of the plaque have been painted the same colour as the sky. Stainless steel hanging hardware will be provided, but not pre-installed.

All of the colours are accurate when viewed on my own computer monitor, but they might not be on yours.

Please note that due to the weight of this painting, I'm unable to offer combined shipping as I normally do when a customer purchases more than one item. It must be packed separately and shipped on its own.
