Recently, I have fallen in love with painting pet portraits. I call it my “secret passion.” Pastel is a wonderful medium for this type of work. It is very soft and expressive – perfect for catching the special characteristics of dogs, cats, horses and other furry creatures. The images below show a few of the very personal animal commissions that I’ve painted for pet lovers recently. Most of these portraits are 8 x 10 inches but can be created at a  larger or smaller size, depending on your needs. I usually work from photos I have shot myself but also use good provided photography.
