This is Emma. She is an 8 year old Shihtzu/Japanese Chin mix, the youngest, by far, in her family as she shares her loving home with two other dogs, both 17. (WOW) According to her “mom” Emma has an “amazing happy personality” which includes an “unusual obsession with her stuffed toy” which accompanies her everywhere. Emma does her best to keep the more senior dogs “young”, and given their age, I’d say she is good at it.
The finished portrait finished out at 12×12″ square, was hand finished with acrylic paint, and was framed on a gallery wrap, with a black float frame.
This portrait is based on a photo taken by her owner/mom, Darlene Pye. The original photo (below) is a wonderful representation of a “perfect” head shot.
