"Izzie"

Oil on museum quality, archival ampersand gessobord™ panel - 8” x 10”


Another small study of Izzie, the Pembrook Welsh Corgi. Dear Izzie was involved in a altercation with a neighborhood brute and came out on the short end. Plastic surgery was required to restore her nose to its original beauty. Like Violetta in La Traviata, she will always have this portrait to reflect on her past glory, although I am told her schnoz has healed nicely.

Love Izzie... her warm and sweet corgi personality, which you have captured so well, will show through her scars

Wonderful portrait, full of warmth and intelligence - but what I really love is the fabric you have painted her on - absolutely stunning in its own right.
