Please include my name and the title of the artwork in the subject line.

Recently, I have been painting Dalmatian pet portraits. Oh boy! Have I had fun painting all those spots! Spots are much more than black and white.

Dalmatian Dogs have Unique Spot Patterns … 

Did you know that each Dalmatian has a unique spot pattern … like a finger print? There is no making up the spots. If you want the dog to be recognized, you have to get those spots in the right places along with the usual features in the face—the look in the eyes, the placement of the nose, the whiskers, the shape of the mouth, the size of the ears, etc. Yes, I am having fun painting the Dalmatian portraits.
