Grandpapa, digital portrait


Portrait information:

Subject: Gandpapa, lhasa apso
Medium: Digital pet portrait
Size: 40 x 30 (16 x 12 in)
Year Painted: 2017



Grandpapa’s portrait was won in a giveaway I had last year, and it took me a while to get it done. It was a pure delight to paint, however. Grandpapa’s story is heartbreaking. He was found on a bad night at 2 am by his family. He was saved, but he also saved them. Although they lost him eventually, he made a change. And that is all it’s about. Sometimes our furry family stays with us for decades, sometimes it’s too short to ever be enough, but one thing is always true: they make a difference.

Rest in peace, Grandpapa.
