Rocky - Portrait of a Pug

Look at this sweet face! One of the gratifying aspects of painting pet portraits is knowing how very loved the subjects are.

Rocky passed on this year after living a long, happy life of 15 years. The painting was a gift commissioned by my cousin to give to his daughter, Sarah. Sarah and Rocky were a team and there was a solid relationship of love and companionship between them. 

I suppose in a way, Rocky was a distant cousin of mine. Rest In Peace Rocky! You are missed and remembered fondly!
