So we're getting a portrait of Uncle Monty done (for those of you who are new to the board, we lost our love Monty, to cancer in August). Well I am SUPER excited because we got a photo of the progress so far! It's not much but I find it is pretty amazing so far. Check out his eyes! I will also post the main photograph that the artist is using for reference.

He's in Maine. We first saw his ad in Modern Dog, then checked out his work. Check out his dog portraits - they are unreal! He actually has an old boxer and that sealed the deal ;)

I don't need exact measurements or anything... "Pretty big" is good enough. I know you're going to come back and post the finished product, right? I don't even have to ask...;)

Thanks Marie Eve :) You'll have to come over to see the finished product, when we finally get it.

My dog, I couldn't even control myself - I had to post the barely started photo. I'll definitely post the finished product! :o

His work is truly amazing. Those are probably some of the finest works I've seen. He does horses incredibly well as well. I know what I want for my anniversary next year!

It doesn't? ;)


I want him to do a collection for me... dogs, cat and horse that all passed on. I think it would be excellent... or I celebrate life and do my current gang.. such a dilema... of course, that money tree I planted in the garden this summer better be more financially lucrative this year than last. ;)
