Briscoe portrait in progress 1

Starting a portrait of Briscoe, a Border Collie and the heart dog of Gloria K. 


The first thing I saw when I began working on Briscoe was this white heart at the top of his head.

This is the 10th portrait I’ve done for this household since 1996. Five Dobermans, two Old English Sheepdogs, a Border Collie, and a Beagle. Most have been memorial portraits. Briscoe is alive and well and enthusiastically fetching balls.

After I made the white heart, I worked outward to the left and the right doing both ears, and the rest of Briscoe’s forehead.
