5x5 oil on panel board
original photo of Otis
This little guy (well, not so little) is a 10 year old Golden Retriever and a recent commission. He'll be delivered this weekend for my customers sister-in-laws birthday on April 18th. I hope she likes it. I really enjoyed painting him. Happy Birthday to Otis's mommy!


  1. Ivy,
    I am the sister-in-law who received this beautiful painting of my "little" Otis (130 lbs). I saw your work at the Hungry Hound and my sister-in-law commissioned you to paint her two dogs, Hope and Champ, for my brother. He proudly displays them on his office desk and wished I could have one of Otis and now I do! Happy birthday to me!

    Again, thank you for your beautiful work and please know that however long I own dogs, you will be their portraitist!

    With warm regards,
    Taryn Miranda

  2. Sara, thank you for visiting and for your kind comment!:-)

    Taryn.. Wow, I am thrilled you like the portrait and so humbled by your lovely words. I can't explain how wonderful it feels to receive such kind feedback I am happy to have been a part of your birthday! Happy Birthday again (since you should be celebrating all week, hee,hee). Give Otis a big hug for me and please keep in touch!
