Oil on linen :: 100 x 75cm :: 39″ x 30″


Marlie was commissioned by Caroline as a 50th birthday gift for her husband Craig. Caroline sent me a quite a few reference photos for her portrait but kept taking photos of Marlie until she was happy with one of them. This photo was especially taken for the portrait and the quality was excellent, which made it so much easier to see the details.

Marlie was framed in a raw, Tasmanian Oak floating box frame which complimented Marlie’s colouring perfectly and gave the painting a stylish and modern finish.

Client Feedback

I commissioned Susanna to create an oil portrait of our beloved yellow lab, Marlie for my husband’s 50th birthday. Marlie is cheeky, playful and full of personality. Susanna captured our dog to perfection, in fact on opening his beautifully wrapped gift, my husband was moved to tears to see such a lifelike image. Marlie the portrait is now hanging proudly in our home where she will remain even once our real Marlie has gone to doggy heaven. Can’t thank you enough Susanna for the best birthday present!
