This is Heidi. According to her owner, she was a good dog. More than a good dog, in fact, a very special and beloved companion who returned the affection many times over. So, it was with more than a little trepidation that I accepted the commission to do her portrait.
Yesterday the collector came to view it for the first time, and take it home. The joy I felt made every effort worthwhile.
If you’re interested, the following will give you a little summary of how the painting process went, start to finish.
If you have Rogers cable, there is a locally produced TV Show called Art Trax which interviewed various Tillsonburg area artists and visited their studios. This is the painting I began during the segment of the show I’m featured in. Unfortunately I do not have access to and haven’t seen the video myself! But I’m told it has been aired, and I see according to their schedules the shows are on more than once. Maybe somebody who knows me will record it for me? That would be nice.
