Pekingese


Lovely Pekingese made with real dog fur. This dog was going to be a English Bulldog... somehow a Pekingese is what came of it. Have a wonderful dog groomer in my town that is happy to supply me with some of the finest cleanest dog fur to use on just such a piece. Working with real dog fur is a incredible challenge! I am really happy with the realism it offers the artwork though ... so I continue to work on perfecting that skill. My customers often what their own dogs fur added to a portrait dog so well worth my work to give them their own dog .. with their own dogs fur. I myself have my beloved Ted created with his fur.
