Beau

8"x8"
oil on canvas
This is a portrait of our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Beau. It was a gift to my wife on her birthday. Beau is such a sweet little boy - his 2nd birthday is coming up in a few days. If you want to see a painting of his sister, Sophie, click on her name.

Ohhh..... I love Beau!! Your wife must be thrilled. I love that he has two different colored eyes. My friends have a Bernese Mountain dog with the same eyes. Great work, Edward!!

This is wonderful. You've caught a real doggie expression that is very authentic.

I remember when you drove to Texas? Already 2 years ha?
What a great piece.
Whats about the blue eye? Is this a cataract???
Or he is just a special guy?

Edward, you've outdone yourself. Once again. What a priceless portrait!!

Catherine Jeffrey said...

What a beautiful painting of this lovely boy. I like the pinkish shadow on his muzzle which helps keep it in the foreground, creating great perspective.

Karen Bruson said...

What a little sweetheart. Nice painting.

James Parker said...

Ed, you are a natural wonder. The expression you captured is marvelous. It deserves a pat on the back and a scratch on the tummy. Instead, maybe a handful of doggy treats for Beau, and thick, juicy Porterhouses for you and Kim.

Beau and Sophie - what great paintings! Doggie love transcending from both!

Linda Popple said...

I LOVE this painting and the one of Sophie!! I have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, too. Her name is Maggie and she is a ruby. These dogs are sooo smart and soooo sweet! You really captured Beau and Sophie's sweet expressions. Well done!!!

He is sooooo sweet! I love your cropping and up close focus it really captures his "soul". I haven't been blogging lately and have missed seeing all your wonderful recent work. Amazing paintings!
