I painted this painting in acrylcs for a guy who was giving the painting as a Christmas present to his girlfriend. He also commissioned Christmas cards of the same dog skiing near Mount Rainier.
Jesse is such an alert and independent spirit that she leapt from my canvas as soon as I began painting. The green background alludes to her love for the outdoors.
Jesse is a coonhound-lab mix and you can tell by her lively eyes that nothing much gets past her. This acrylic painting measures 10" x 10" on a 1.5" deep canvas. The edges are painted black.
You can buy a card that is based on this painting at my etsy
If you are contemplating a custom portrait for Christmas, consider contacting the artist sometime in October!
