Completed Dog Painting

Two Dogs in a Forest

Last week I put the finishing touches on this 20″ x 20″ oil painting on canvas! It features two dogs – Mojo and Moxie – on a path in a green forest.

Mojo and Moxie – Dog Portrait Oil Painting on Canvas

The canvas was handmade with Texas-grown organic cotton that I stretched over FSC-certified wood stretcher bars, and triple-primed with an all-natural gesso.

Together with my two and four year-old helpers, we delivered this last week to a happy client!

Now it’s on to the next project – mural art at a soon-to-open Indian restaurant in Ashburn. The restaurant hasn’t even opened, is undergoing a renovation, and somehow it still smells good in there! I’ll post photos of the first mural when I finish it in a week or so.

Painting Update

I’m nearing the finish line for this dog painting, of two cute pups sitting together on a forest path! Here it is below. Just have to paint in the rest of the path, some more details on the dogs, and then paint the sides of the canvas a dark forest green as a last step, and it’ll be ready to deliver!

Dog Oil Painting Commission Progress

Mojo and Moxie

Recently I was commissioned to paint these two dogs, Mojo and Moxie:

Cute dogs! The way they are standing there next to each other reminds me of my 2 and 4 year old sons, who seem to always be stuck to each other’s hips.

The proposal for this painting was to paint them with a green forest background.

Here is how it’s coming along!

I should finish it within a week or two and will post a photo of the completed painting when it’s done!

Teddy the Dog – Pet Portrait Painting

I recently finished this dog portrait painting in time for my friend to pick it up tonight and surprise his girlfriend with it!

It’s painted on a gallery-stretched linen canvas – linen is the best for portrait paintings!

Dog Portrait Art – Paintings and Drawings

Dog portraits are a popular commission for many artists, as dogs really are a part of our families. My own family owned our Bichon Frise dog Desire for many years, and she was a great friend!

In the commissions I’ve done, I’ve found that receiving a portrait painting of a beloved pet is just as meaningful as a portrait painting of a family member. One of my clients even fought off tears as she received her dog portrait:

“Dave, thank you for the beautiful painting of Otis, my sister’s black lab. It brought tears to my eyes when you showed it to me. The likeness is incredible. My sister had the same reaction when I gave it to her. She can’t get over how well you captured his soulful expression. You are truly a gifted artist. Thanks, Dave.”

To commission your own special dog portrait art, please see the Commission Custom Art page.
