7" x 5" pastel on paper.
I was really worried about this one. My source photo was shadowy and blurry, and when I sharpened up the shapes in it, I got this vaguely grouchy expression no matter how hard I tried not to.
Never having met a Golden who had that characteristic, I was very concerned. Could that possibly be right?
Much to my relief, the client happily informed me that yes, I'd caught Tucker's characteristic, catlike "And I should do that, why?" attitude. I wish I could've met the old fellow. I'd probably have loved him.

10" x 8" oil on canvas, from a photo I took (in the snow a couple weeks ago; I changed the background).
I am offering this size and style of portrait at only $100, for orders placed by Feb. 28, 2010. After that, the price will increase to $125.

Lola. 10" x 8" oil on canvas, from an old snapshot.
The original photo was taken indoors with a flash -- not good source material for art, but all we had, since Lola is sadly no longer with us. I put her outside in the sunlight and tall grass instead.
