Painting a Pup a Day: Daily Dog Paintings by Lara Harris, "Maggie" the Boxer

Painting 12,"Maggie," 9"x 12",
oil on canvas
10% of the proceeds will go directly to
Best Friends Animal Society

This is the completed painting of "Maggie," the Boxer. I'm waiting to hear back from the owners for the final ok, and then I will sign and date this piece in the lower right hand corner & wait for it to dry. 10% will be donated to Best Friends Animal Society. Boy what a challenge painting a Boxer can be! They have a rather unique nose & muzzle and their eyes are quite different as well. I also found the shorter fur to be more of a challenge as opposed to longer haired breeds like the Westie, Sheltie, or Golden Retriever. However, this was a great learning experience for myself as I am trying to add a number of new breeds to my repertoire with my Painting a Pup a Day project...and now I can add the Boxer! I now will be starting a Westie Painting for a Charity Picnic on April 26th that is being held by the Westie Rescue of Orange County & Beyond. They will auction off a painting of mine as well as a custom pet portrait, so if you are in the OC be sure to sign up! I will also be starting on a painting of a friend's Pug and an adorable Westie who lives in North Carolina :o) If you would like to be a part of my Painting a Pup a Day project drop me an email at Loveall4Him@aol.com and I can send you my current price list & put your name on my waiting list!Pet portraits make a wonderful gift for friends, family, or for yourself!10 % of the proceeds of each painting goes to dog rescue.
