Portrait of "Misha"- original enhanced watercolor painting

Akita German Shepherd Mix

Original pet portrait commissioned by Karen and Jay Ruffner of Morris, IL.  Upon receiving the portrait, Karen expressed to me that it was like Misha was finally "home" with them again (Misha had suddenly passed away after an unfortunate accident). I am so very  happy to have been able to bring such joy to this family and I am thankful for being given the opportunity to paint the portrait of their beloved companion and friend.

Customer Comments:


We like it how it is!  We love it!  It's absolutely perfect.  We looked at it today and really think it's right on where we want it to be. We really like how you lightened the dark spots and darkened the white.  The brown around her eyes literally matched her eyes so I think it's good.  I think this way makes her look younger.  She acquired more white as she aged...

We're really excited about this.  I knew you could do it!!!  This is exactly what I was looking for when we decided to do this.  Thank you so much. Everyone has been asking me how I picked an artist online without seeing any work up close.  I knew from the moment that I saw that fox painting that you were the one.  I knew you wouldn't let us down.  I can't wait to get it framed and hung.

Thanks again!!!
