Oil. From small to large and so many shapes and colors. Animals all have one thing in common and before I start to paint, a study of the character of that animal is so very important. That way I can feel that one important element of that animal. It’s their soul. I get to know them and become attached. But, when I’m asked to do a portrait of the owner with the animal, that becomes a real challenge with excitement. This portrait image of both pet and owner was so enjoyable to paint. There is such a connection between the owner and her pet.
