Contemporary pet portrait of 3 Westies

Artwork by BZTAT

Meet (from left to right) Skittles, Junior and Marshmallow! These frisky fellows are Westies, or West Highland Terriers, that live in Perry, OH, a suburb of Canton. I was honored to paint their custom pet portrait as a gift to their favorite human from her parents.

Skittles and Junior are younger pups and from the same litter. Marshmallow is a bit older, but still very energetic. Can you imagine living with 3 Westies? the energy level in that home must be unbelievable!

They just moved into a new home that their family had custom built, and the portrait was commissioned as part of the new decor.

This painting was a bit of a challenge for me, as white fluffy dogs tend to be the most difficult to do in my style. Multiply that difficulty by three, and you have an even bigger challenge. And this was a larger painting–30″ H x 40″ W.  But I enjoyed working on the piece and was pretty pleased with the end result.

What do you think?

Life is an Adventure!

  1. You did such a beautiful job. Do you do the painting from multiple pictures or do you follow a single picture and make it abstract? I love looking at your work.

  2. Ah–You caught me being lazy. Usually I post photos of the painting through all steps in the process, but I got lazy today. 🙂 I used 2 photos here. One with Junior and Skittles in it and the other of Marshmallow. I played with the photos in PhotoShop to help with the abstraction, then projected the images onto the canvas.

  3. I think you did an outstanding job, and the family will love it.
