"Wendell" (oil on linen; 10" x 10") sold


"Wendell" is for Richard, who commissioned the portrait as his wife's birthday present.  Wendell is an English bulldog; in the portrait, he is a puppy.  Richard wanted to have something of his wife's in the painting as he is "her" dog.  He came up with the idea of her running shoe and its photo; I came up with the design.  I think the portrait turned out rather well with a humorous narrative!

  1. Oh...those eyes! What a wonderful expression. Richard's wife is very lucky to have this very personalized painting. It would make me smile every time I looked at it. Great job, Kim!
