American Bulldogs

Wow!  It's been a year since I blogged anything.  And what a busy year it has been, we sold our home in New Hampshire, packed up nearly 30 years of stuff and moved 1000 miles to upstate South Carolina.  Selling, buying, moving out and moving in is quite an enterprise and not for the faint of heart.  But we did it and are in a really good place.  Life if starting to get back to normal, and although I have been painting (quite a lot actually), I haven't been very good at sharing.  That (hopefully) ends now.

American Bulldogs was a commissioned piece that arrived on my doorstep last October. Someone I had met in 2011 and shared a business card with, contacted me and needed this before Thanksgiving.  It was to be a gift for her nephew, a 3 time Iraqi war vet, who served as an EMT.  He is home now, thankfully, but does suffer from PTSD.  These dogs and cooking serve as his therapy.  What an honor to paint these happy delightful creatures.

I am happy to report that the end product was very well received and is hanging in a place of honor in his home.

Can I paint something for you?  If so, just contact me at PetPortraitsbyWendy@gmail.com.
