Background comes first..

I always start a pet painting with a pencil sketch. Proportions are key. Once I finish the sketch, I move on to the background. If the pet(s) is a dark color, I make the background a lighter color so that the pet is the focus of the painting. If the pet(s) is a light color, like Kiwi and Erwin, I will make the background a darker, more bold color.

Shelly's son (My lil bro) Justin with Kiwi

I did this painting as a Christmas gift for my amazing 2nd mom, Shelly! She does so many amazing things for our family and is just a super-woman! I wanted to do something special, something unique. So I painted her two favorite fur-babies, Kiwi and Erwin. Shelly rescued both of them from Angels Among Us, a fantastic non-profit animal rescue organization.

I love you Shelly!
