Joey

This was a small acrylic painting of Joey who was sadly hit by a car. He is missed very much by his owner who just celebrated her birthday last week. Her daughter commissioned this portrait as a keepsake for her mum. The client was travelling abroad at the time of her mum’s birthday so she asked me to send the painting directly to her mum with a little card. I took a picture of the wrapped painting and you can see it below together with some work-in-progress photos.

The client was very happy with the finished painting:

Hi Ivana! I absolutely love it!! And really think my mother will too! 🙂 🙂 Thank you so much, Grainne

The painting was the smallest size I work in, a 20 x 20 cm, painted with acrylics on stretched canvas. I simplified the background and added some red and blue shading to compliment Joey.
