I haven’t been updating lately, but that’s not because I haven’t been doing the paintings, it’s just that I was burning the midnight oil all during the lead-up to the Trump election.
This portrait is particularly poignant.
The dog is Ernie. He logged many, many miles with his truck driving pal. Ernie passed away, and I was honored to be chosen to memorialize Ernie.
I did this portrait last month, and sadly, the owner of Ernie has also, very unexpectedly, passed away. This becomes a double memorialization, something that I did not anticipate, but I hope eases the pain, somewhat, of the original patron, his wife.
