Portrait of Rip

Rip – oil on panel – 8×10 inches


Such a cutie pie!

My niece commissioned me to paint this sweet pup from photos she sent me

last December. She and her family had spent an amazing Thanksgiving at

her friend’s gorgeous farm in North Carolina . To thank him for his

generosity, she wanted to give him something special – Always a challenge

for someone who has everything. Enter me. I did the same for a family

who were our gracious hosts for Christmas dinner and vacation in Hong

Kong two years ago.
