Dogs have incredible capacity. The more you look, the more they exceed your ideas beyond that of trusted companion. As art subject matter, there is much to explore in a contemporary portrait. Dogs live such different experiences. From abandoned dog on the street, to kenneled hunting dog, to show dog with a Facebook page, there is an ability for deep connection with us! Capturing that essence of what we love about dogs and our relationship to them is what I strive to put on canvas!
