Almost Finished....


This painting was a very special project for me. Sadly, Cooper is no longer with us, so I had the very important job of translating Cooper's personality onto a canvas. I wanted to make sure I really "did him justice" because he sounds like he was one amazing pup. The very sweet lady who ordered this painting, Karen, planned this as a surprise for her husband (who absolutely LOVED Cooper). I couldn't wait for him to see the finished painting! I only wish I could've seen his reaction when he first saw it.

Karen did pass on a very sweet message after they received the painting:

"It did do him justice and it is such a nice keepsake of him. Arnold is impressed by how well you could do that from the photo I gave you. I didn't want Cooper to be forgotten and that perfect expression of him that your painted will make me smile. He was a great pet!"

Gone But Never Forgotten.
