Beans the Dog
16 x 20 acrylic on canvas

Beans was my first painting experience for many years and the painting that had me push to continue creating commissioned pet portrait paintings. At this time I would roughly sketch out the image on the canvas and would work off of a scanned image printed out on a 8.5in x 11in piece of paper. Details would be specific to the quality of the original image/scan/print out, generally losing detail from every step. Here’s to Beans! Beans started a new realm in my painting and allowed me to paint more often and hone in on my skills.
