    Custom dog portrait of Max golden retriever puppy painting by Leanne Wildermuth

    I’ve completed Max’s portrait and just await the final blessing from my client before I ship this beautiful little puppy painting across the Atlantic. I snapped some photos as I was working on him and thought I’d share that progress with you as well, you can see all of the photos behind the fold!

    I LOVE it! It’s absolutley gorgeous! It makes me want to have another Golden Retriever, but since we already have three Border Collies, Hubs would probably tell me to go find a new place to live. hehe

    Your Collies are stunning, Misty!

    Couldn’t you just build a big doghouse in the backyard for the hubs? They have this in-floor heating now that I hear is pretty cozy. hehe! ;)
