Recently I painted a 4x4 inch miniature portrait in commission of Mim Eisenberg's sweet Pomeranian dog Zoe Bear. Zoe Bear is 16 years old and she's a sweet and very smart old lady. Zoe Bear knows the difference between at least 200 of her toys and can fetch them all on command, now that is clever!
I thought it was a fitting idea to portray Zoe Bear with a few of her toys, I painted her in a more realistic way than I normally do, I think it turned out wonderfully. Mim was very happy with her new miniature and added it to her ever growing collection of Zoe Bear artworks.
Thanks for the commission Mim!
Here are a few stages of the process of painting Zoe Bear's portrait.
