on canvas, 40 x 30 cm (©Carin Steen)
I’ve painted quite a
few pets who are no longer with us. And while a portrait of a beloved dog or
cat is a lovely thing to remember them by, it’s of course always bitter-sweet.
This is Trooper who
passed the rainbow bridge not too long ago. I haven’t had the pleasure to meet
him, he sure looks like a great dog. Here he is depicted with a big smile on
his face, on the lawn in front of his home. I hope this painting brings comfort
to his owners, and that Trooper enjoys the grass on the other side too.
