Chris and Chloe

Chris & Chloe

I just finished a portrait of my stepson, Chris, and his dog, Chloe. I think I captured the love and magic between them. Chris actually shed some tears when he saw it, remembering his departed doggie.

I can be commissioned to do animal portraits, or a double one, like this.  I really enjoy the innocence and beauty of animals.
