This little
guy had just 3 legs.
I believe he was born that way. His life was not easy
and he lost his battle not too long ago. The owner was very sad to of course seeing wee Ajax struggle and suffer so, but missed him terribly when he was gone. A friend commissioned me to paint her a portrait of Ajax. I couldn't decide which photo to work from so  i did both. His sweet sole was so evident in the photos they provided. These are both watercolour. 12" X 17".


  1. Beautiful portraits, Ross! Ajax's sweetness radiates from both paintings.

  2. Thank you Kathryn! When doing someone's dog it is always a challenge to get them they way "they" see their pets. Hopefully the owner will agree. :)

  3. So very beautiful Ross. Just such a wonderful gift you have.

    1. Thank you Gena! I appreciate your visit and comments. I had not painted for a long time. Thought it might not work again but fun to be back at it. :)
