I paint portraits from photos that my clients send me. If I’m lucky, they’re able to get a really good photo of their pet’s face. If they do, I’m good to go! That’s because of the assistance I get from the animals living in my house. They have been recruited as paw models. So when a dog owner commissions me to paint Marie Antoinette in a seductive pose, no worries, Puggy will do his darnedest to give me the additional reference material I need.
