Ellie - Oil on Canvas

This is a series of paintings that started with the "Willard" and turned into commissions to continue the Best Friends Collection which helped since I had run out of my own animal friends to keep it going.  The purpose of this style was to combine surrealism to better capture each personality better, making the eyes and expression real but with a fun background that reflects the owners style, and something in the paw that reflects both the owner and the pet.  This way it is more fun to enjoy in the home and has a stronger character than the typical pet portrait style.  This is Ellie, a golden lab from Michigan, with coffe and purple Hydrangeas.
