BEST FRIENDS

16x20 oil on canvas sold

Here is one of my latest portrait commissions. Best Friends posed its own set of challenges, I had to balance these bright blue eyes, strawberry red hair, pale skin, and a very, very black dog or in this case, best friend. Take care and enjoy this wonderful fall weather wherever you might be!

A challenge you undertook, conquered and excelled! What happy friends they are and I'm sure the client will be over the moon.
