Stephen contacted me the day after this sweet little dog crossed the rainbow bridge and I could tell by his email that Sparky meant the world to him and his family. It always saddens me greatly when I receive such emails, where the emotions are still so raw that you can feel what they’re going through. I know how incredibly heartbreaking it is to lose such a huge part of the family and I always feel so bad for them, but I also know that this little guy was very much loved and for that, I am sure he is extremely grateful.
Stephen sent me a couple of reference photos to work from and this is the one that was chosen. I loved the angle at which it was taken, with Sparky’s legs stretched out before him. It gave a lovely and interesting perspective to the finished portrait.
Sparky was framed with an imported Italian black and silver moulding, double matboards, silver name plaque and UltraVue non-reflective glass.
