I think I finished a painting! This one has been in the works for maybe over half a year…It was my first commissioned painting, so I had nothing to do with the subject matter. I will say that it’s harder to paint that way, because you don’t share the passion for the subject in the same way that your client does. However, it was still fun and challenging to paint all these different animals. By the way, this is not a copy of one of the C.M. Coolidge paintings. I only borrowed the concept – and one of the dogs. All the dogs are my originals except for the little English bulldog which I adapted from his painting, “A Friend in Need“.

  1. Fantastic job Mary! I agree…commissions are really hard because it doesn’t exactly pour from your heart. Very challenging. . . I always have to stop and think, if this painting was for ME, how would I paint it. You did a great job!
