Ms, Copper Penny, French Bulldog - Oil on canvas, 16" x 20"

This is sweet little Copper Penny, a French Bulldog that my clients adopted. She is one of the sweetest, most charming little animals I've ever met! No wonder she ended up being a gift for her owner's birthday.

The unusual setting is based on the decor of the room she will reside in - the man cave! Barstools with zebra print, Axel Rose posters on the wall and an oversized Lava Lamp. So, I incorporated all of the elements into the portrait, even down to the silvery-gray rug. Penny sports a bright pink bone tag with rhinestones, and the client wanted pearls on her collar, so there you have it. I added the nail polish 'cuse pretty girls deserve to look *pretty* and we think she does! This was such a fun portrait to do and I am told her husband loves it!

  1. He was actually surprised! And he loves it. He thinks it's "fantastic!" The lava lamp is a favorite touch. Thank you so much for a very unique and special gift.
