"Tega"


I had donated a pet portrait to "Boxer Rescue Canada" for their Fall auction fundraiser and the winning bidder receives a portrait of their beloved dog. This boy belonged to the lady who won the auction. He is a pure bread male Boxer named Tega. Sadly he is no longer with us. This is watercolour on 300 lb. Arches C/P paper approximately 18" X 22" .

    1. Thanks Lorraine. Yes, they can be fearsome for sure but the sweetest breed ever when it comes to loyalty and trustworthiness. They love children too. We have two of them! :)

  2. The look in his eyes is enough to replace any words that might describe this portrait, he will remain ever live for the person that owned him.

    1. I'm always a bit fearful when doing a commission. The presentation of the finished piece is when i hold my breath the longest and wait for the reaction. A bit stressful but so far so good!

    1. Hi Pat. One is never sure, are they? I am always fearful when a commission is complete and the presentation is about to happen. Scary stuff. Your approval is of great value to me. See, I'm a fan. :)

    1. The client has only seen the photo so far. She approved so that is a good thing. Thanks Christiane for the vote of confidence. I especially enjoyed your small happy works. They are awesome!
