This is one of my many commission paintings that I had the privilege of painting. This is a springer spaniel that moved to Florida. There are very few beaches that welcome dogs in Florida so I used my artistic license and painted PJ standing on the shore of Horseneck Beach, Westport, Ma. Important because PJ's Dad (my client) was originally from Westport and loved that beach.
I choose this photo from the many that my client was kind enough to send me. I love working from lots of photo of the subject. It allows me to really study and learn all the tiny unique details, behaviors and characteristics of my subject.
This is the photo of PJ
