“There is more to life than being handsome
True beauty is in my zest for life!”
Tucker is a show dog who has the heart and physique of a champion. I could tell he loved showing off because when I came to photograph him for his portrait, the minute he saw the camera he struck a pose and held it. I had to verbally tell him I’d finished before he would move! Then he showed me his amazing agility play and I saw what a fun goofball he really was on the inside. His portrait had to include both these elements for one to see and feel the true Tucker.
You do such wonderful work. One can tell it is a labor of love with the heart that you show in your paintings. One look at Tucker’s painting and you know it is Tucker – you have captured his expression, who he is, in his eyes. I can look back at his puppy pictures, before we even chose him – our choice was between him and another male – and the expression in his eyes – I guess the essence of who he is… was there in that look. That is what made us pick him as a puppy and you have captured that so well in your painting. So many times I see Tucker looking like that and wish I could capture his essence like you did, and now I have it. Thank you so much – you have an amazing way to see in the heart and soul of an animal and capture it well! ~ Joanne
