Portrait of Levi

It’s so sad to lose a beloved pet. Our furry friends – whether they are a dog, cat, hamster, or horse – occupy such a big space in our hearts…

When I was asked to paint a Memorial Portrait of this beautiful pitbull, Levi, I debated how to approach painting the background. I wanted to honor him by creating a “look and feel” that matched his adorable, yet tough-guy personality.

Here’s the reference photo:Portrait-of-Levi-Reference-Photo

I love how it came out!

Most importantly Maria loved how it came out, too!

Thank you so much Linda. He’s beautiful! You really captured Levi’s spirit perfectly.¬†– Maria¬†
