Recently completed a commission for a great friend and collector who will remain anonymous, here are the color studies and the final piece all created on location using photo reference since our Gus here recently past away.
I love when a project is not only fun, but is rewarding in the feeling that a loving pet owner has somewhat filled the void of losing their best friend by having a painting created of them.
This particular collector has an amazing collection, including some from a few artists I have closely followed for years, more on that in a later post.
"Gus" Oil on Canvas, 8"x10"
