I painted this little dog portrait of MissingWillow's sweet dog, Jenna. The base is a 4" by 4" block of wood, and it's painted with acrylic paints.


I originally had a beaded wire for hanging, but it just didn't look right, so I added silver bead caps for feet. It seemed like it was missing something, so I grabbed this huge glass heart bead that's been sitting around in my craft room for years now, and attached it to the top.

Here's the sides. The red ribbon is hiding the holes on top where the wire used to be attached.  Cheesy


And here's the picture of Jenna I used for reference. It's she the sweetest?

I think the feet really finish it. I'm sure she loves it.

Thanks! I don't consider myself a painter, so I was really pleased at how it turned out.

I love this!  I have been wanting to do something similar with photos of my 2 dogs.
Yours came out so well, and I love the feet!

So awesome! Just saw this on your blog, I think it's amazing that you painted that (not like, you precisely, but that anyone could paint that, I thought it was some kind of image repro technique!)

Let me tell you I burst into tears when I opened the box.  Jenna lost a leg to bone cancer right before Christmas and is going in to have tumors removed from her belly this morning and yet still got our sheep up for feeding at daybreak.  She's all heart.  This captures her perfectly.  You absolutely are a painter, Racky.  Actually, you're my favorite painter!  I will cherish it forever.  Thank you again.

This is gorgeous and awesome!!! I would love something like this to have in memory of my dog that passed away in January... This is just so pretty even if it wasnt their dog specifically but even more amazing that you made it personalized as their dog. You have serious painting skills! LOVE IT
