11 dog portrait-lacciaiA while back, I was approached with a unique challenge: painting portraits of 11 beloved dogs as a special birthday gift for their devoted owner. Initially, the idea was to merge them into one composition, but reconciling various photos with differing lighting, settings, and perspectives proved to be quite the task. Instead, we opted for individual 5×7 portraits, each capturing the essence of these furry companions. To tie it all together, my local framer (Miller Off Main) arranged them within a custom mat and frame. The end result was nothing short of delightful!
