This black labrador was a treasured family dog who passed away summer 2018. This portrait is a surprise Christmas gift from one of the sons and his wife to his parents. Loki lived a joyful life for 12 years and his missed dearly.
For the background color, we decided between a few grounding colors that fit not only Loki’s personality but also his parent’s decor and yet also considering the client’s taste as the one commissioning the piece. In the end we selected 5 different colors and enlisted the help of social media to put it to a final vote. We all agree this beautiful yellow was the one.
