Animal Portrait Gallery
Dog Portraits, Horse Portraits and other Pet Portraits
Artists have always been drawn to capture the beauty of animals. Canine paintings and equine paintings are seen throughout art history.
If a treasured pet has passed away, or is in a different location, I can work with existing photos. Otherwise, I like to take my own photos, outdoors or with a single light source, and close to eye level. I am looking for the beauty, dignity and the familiar expression that will greet you forever, in a dog portrait or a horse portrait.
Animal portraits give me the joyful opportunity to observe and render the anatomy and the texture of the fur.
