Feature Art Friday: Ruby & the Pacific

This is Ruby, an Australian cattle dog who lived a wonderful fifteen-year-long life in Sacramento, California with people who loved her very much. This pet portrait was commissioned by the sister of the woman Ruby owned. She was unsure of a background color, but once Mary mentioned to me that Ruby loved to go to the ocean to swim or go boating, I knew a Pacific blue would be just perfect for her.

You can see other pet portraits I have painted here. I donate 20% of all of my pet portrait commission fees to 'Out of the Woods' pet rescue in Little Rock, Arkansas.
