Christa commissioned Sully as a memorial portrait and is one of a five portrait Christmas commission which includes Hoover, Judah, Yeager and Zelda. As Christa put it, “She was the most special dog and we miss her every single day.” Sadly, Sully crossed the rainbow bridge three years ago but she is obviously still very much loved by her family.
The mock-up was created quite simply by just extending the ear and arm which were out of the original photo. I also lightened the photo slightly in order to see the direction of her fur in the darker areas.
