Spike’s Pet Portrait

BY ERICA ERIKSDOTTER

My client originally ordered a pet portrait of Anna to surprise her husband. Anna never left her husband’s side, but Spike…. Spike was my client’s dog and she loved him dearly. A german shorthair pointer, he was her love. He was the opposite of Anna’s regal sense and champion ways, and a real goofball.

My client wanted to honor their dogs hunting background so we picked this lovely green for both Anna and Spike’s portrait.

LOVE NOTE

During the process: “I’m blown away. I try not to cry but always do.”

After seeing the portraits in real life: “The portraits of Spike and Anna are gorgeous. My husband is in tears. I love Anna’s so intense and regal portrait just like her but Spike’s makes me cry. That big goofball was my love and his portrait captures his happy loving spirit. Someday I hope to send you the others. Thank you for bringing us such beautiful memories.”
