Kona - Siberian Husky Commission
This is Kona, who recently passed away, and is now immortalized in an oil painting commissioned by his owner. I usually charge extra for a detailed background but I created this background with the stipulation that it would be slightly abstract and I could just get rid of it if he didn't like it. Never having seen the Rocky Mountains I wasn't sure I could paint them well enough to pass for a Denver resident. Thankfully the client loves this painting.
