Bernese Mountain Dog

17 12 2008

This is the second commission from this particular client. The first portrait is featured here


This was done in a similar way to the first one. Pastels on colored paper, 11×14. This is actually something that the two of them do a lot. The owner has trained the Bernese Mountain Dog, Cooper, to take his hat from him! He takes his hat and parades it around the house! It’s little things like this that make portraits personal. This interaction between the two of them is something that is special to them, and I’m happy to have captured it on paper.

Here is a detail of the dog’s face:


I met this client at Artsake Gallery to get it framed just in time for Christmas!
