Meet Wanchai she's a labradoodle. With the sweetest demeanor. She is playful yet gentle. She's a fast learner and  very playful at the right times. She is snugly an loves her big sister. Her favorite toys are a pock-a-dotted squeaky rubber chicken, an antler that is not in the illustration. She loves to chase chipmunks around the yard too. Her human sister enjoys reading and tennis. Both enjoy being out doors and exploring.

Process From a Photo to a Painting

I take a photo

I paint the photo

It's all yours
I have this thing I do, I love to capture a photo an bring it life in a painting. It brings me great joy to challenge myself to recreate exactly as my eye sees it. Reality is our brain sees or hears something and we reinterpret its the way we can best understand it by mimicking our depiction. 
That right there is the challenge. I enjoy doing commissions for this very reason.
