Earlier this month I got to send this painting of a beautiful Cane Corso to its home in Victoria BC:
Sadly this gentle giant crossed over the Rainbow Bridge just days before his portrait arrived on the Island 🙁
Ozlo and his sister (Beatrix – a little Brussels Griffon, whose portrait I had painted in the Fall) couldn’t be more opposite in size, but also couldn’t be cuter as cuddle buddies! Here is a pic of a pen & ink sketch I did of the two that was sent in the package as well:
When I first started painting Ozlo’s portrait, I found it challenging to map out his beautiful Brindle fur pattern – but the closer it came to completion the quicker it fell into place, and the more I fell in love with this handsome boy. I wish I could have met him in person!
