This was a commissioned piece that I created for the couple who had just adopted this pup. Grace was brought into their family and was considered to be a healing dog. I’ve heard it said many times that our pets save us when we save them. Grace’s owner sent me lots of pictures so I could get to know her. She lived out of state, so through photos and videos, I was able to capture her personality.
I chose to work in pastel because this medium lends itself well for the softness of fur.
