Last minute Christmas Portraits

I just finished in the nick of time two pet portraits for a friend of mine. She wanted a portrait of her son's keeshound, and her daughter's horse, Radar. So here are the pet portraits.
The keeshound and her son are inseperable and he will love the portrait of his dog.
Radar used to be a lesson horse and is now enjoying a well deserved retirement! I have known Radar for over 14 yrs and he is one of the best ponies! He is a chestnut appaloosa and a very forgiving nature. Allison will love to have her portrait of Radar. I love Radar's eyes, they look like he has eyeliner!
Both are painted with acrylics on 8 x 10 canvas boards. I have protected both with a finish.

Beautiful keeshound! Love the expression on the face.

Beautiful site!

Have a Merry Christmas!

thank you Gail! The original photo of the dog made the eyes look like demon eyes! So I was guessing on the eyes, and the owner said they were just right!
You have a Merry Christmas too!
