Jax's Portrait - original acrylic painting by Erica Eriksdotter, front

Jax and Mosby look quite adorable with their side by side brother portraits.  Erica does great work – she really captures the dogs’ expressions.  And we like her personally.  She’s great. – S.K. of Virginia

Jax’s Portrait  is an original painting commissioned by a client from Virginia who wanted to capture her daughter’s dog on canvas. This was the client’s second custom order as I had the honor of painting Mosby the previous year, also her daughter’s dog. It is a wonderful compliment when clients return for more.

Since Mosby and Jax’s portraits were going to hang next to each other, I tried to match the yellow background on Mosby’s portrait. Since most background colors are a blend of several colors it matching colors are always a challenge. But I think it worked out.  The painting measures 10 x 10 inches (25 x 25 cm) and is painted on a 1.5 inch (4 cm) deep gallery wrapped canvas. All sides are painted with the background color.
