Painting portraits of dogs is a special pleasure for me. I got to know Jim and Cody the beagle via Skype video. Cody is Jim’s best friend, and from puppyhood, has always had a heart of gold. In fifteen years, he’s never once snapped at Jim or anybody. His small stature, saucy gait and big spirit inspired Jim to compose some rollicking folk songs about him. In fact, Cody is so well-liked by the whole community, he could well be voted in as mascot for his town!
“The portrait is everything I had hoped for! My dog, Cody, is such a gentle soul. I contacted you because your work showed a sensitivity to see such things and the skill to capture it.”
