TILLY FROM DALLAS

My latest subject, a winsome Dallas, TX pooch by the name of Tilly. I don't have any pets myself, so painting all of these adorable dogs is having an effect on me and there may be a day when I actually adopt one for myself! If you have a beloved pet you'd like immortalized or know of someone who does, please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions!

Hi there,
I love this painting of this dog. I am going to feature you on my blog www.kristinpearce.blostpot.com

Just curious, how much do you charge for a comission like this? I would love for you to paint mine!

This just brought tears to my eyes. In Nov I lost my best buddy Chevy after 12 years of love & licks. This might be the perfect thing for me. I love this idea!! Thanks for this post!!

I think an assistant with 4 legs would be a nice addition to your world. They provide unconditional love and the walks help me to work through creative blocks. They say pets add years to one's life.
What kind are you thinking about? Just think of all the fun accessories for your assistant? Bright leads, preppy collars and so forth...

Anne, thank you so much for doing such a fabulous job capturing Tilly's cute little personality (says her mommy completely objectively). My husband loved his bday present and we found the perfect place for it in our family room!

Anne-Tilly is wonderful-the dog's personality really comes through. You should do a post showing all of your pet portraits-I remember you have done some fabulous ones.

Love Where You Live said...

How adorable! May I ask what you charge? I guess you work from a photo? I had someone paint my last dog (who died at 15). I had taken a photo of him running on the beach just as the sun was rising. I gave the artist several pictures, and she chose that one. So glad I had her paint the picture. He's gone, but I am still reminded of that fabulous new morning. cheers, -susan
