About the Commission

This is a dog portrait of a lovely springer spaniel called Baxter. Baxter's pet portrait was commissioned as a birthday present for his owner.
The client had some difficulty trying to take a picture of Baxter, as he was always on the move, but at the end she captured him just right.
She wanted the portrait of Baxter to show his personality which she described in her email: "He is a very young and very fun dog...he is as cute and full of devilment and would hope you could catch that in the portrait." The client wanted a small inscription on the bottom of the portrait to read 'Baxter, April 2013'.
