Chupavi was a 12 year old terrier/poodle mix, and was done as a birthday present to his owner he didn’t live with any more. She missed him very much, so we thought a portrait would be a great way to send a “piece” of Chupavi to her. Those that know Chupavi for years say it is really him on te portrait, that the right “spirit” and that “come and get my ball” face was captured in it!
