Dogs have personalities and certain mannerisms that make them unique – just like people. Painting Bama was a little different than most of the dog portraits I do. He was a rescue dog adopted years ago by our dear friends Rick and Tanya Britton-Rell. He was loved and well cared for from adoption until his final moment, but there was always a sadness in his eyes that told the story of his preadoption days. Laying on a crimson Alabama blanket with his silky coat shining in the light, he seems to be saying “thank you” for giving me a good life!
