Painted portraits of Portuguese water dog in her kayak on Lopez Island, WA

Francesca, Portuguese water dog on her kayak on Lopez Island in the San Juan Islands north of Seattle. The painting on the left is the digital version of the portrait. I always create a digital version first and work w the client to arrive at the composition, colors, and content of the painting before I start a hand painted canvas. It can be a months long process before a final hand painted canvas is finished, and it's never done until the client is happy! Francesca is happy too, but she is always happy. Especially when she gets to go to Lopez and kayak!
