Josie / Sold

Somehow without looking for it I've been designated a pet portrait artist.  Someone who purchased the 'Naptime' painting has asked me to do 'Josie',  and now another commission for a pet cat.. 
As long as they are happy, I will comply. 
I tried to capture that personality of Josie whom I am told loved playing with that ball above everything. Here is the photo it was taken from ... 'Josie and Her Ball' . What a beautiful girl..



  1. Dear BJ - I can understand why you are designated and chosen to do pet portraits...each one just shines and Josie is truly beautiful - sounds like you might be busy in the coming year! Hugs

    1. Thanks so much Debbie... Have a wonderful week and a Merry Christmas..

  2. Well I can see why you're getting these commissions. This looks great, and it certainly captures the personality of Josie.

    I hope you have a good Christmas Barbra Joan.

  3. She is beautiful indeed, BJ! You painted her perfectly!

  4. What a lucky client who found you! and what a great capture of the spirit of this wonderful dog!

  5. Your pet portraits are lovely, Barbara,congrats!Wish you and your family a great time on Christmas and a very happy new year x

  6. BJ, congratulations on the pet commissions, they are very fortunate indeed, to have you paint their pets portrait.
    You did a wonderful job capturing Josie. Well done.
    BJ. may you and your family enjoy a very Merry Christmas.

  7. Wonderful Barbra I bet the client was thrilled

  8. I'm the lucky client. Barbra Joan's work is simply exquisite. My brother and his wife lost Josie last fall. I gave them the painting for Christmas. When they opened the package, there wasn't a dry eye in the place.
