I hate to be one of those people advertising Christmas before Halloween has run its course, but my painting schedule does fill fast!  Be sure to email heather@flyoungstudio.com if you’d like to get on the list.

***Come the start of 2014, I’ll be raising my fee for Pet Portraits considerably.  They are truly a labor of love, but they take many layers of oil paint and lots of hours of work to complete.  Anyone that gets on the list before December 31st, 2013 will get the old rate of $250 for an 8×10″. 

Lab Lovers Mural Update

April 18, 2013

Funny I should have two clients, in close geographic proximity to each other, ask for new dogs to be added to their murals at the same time!  I always love revisiting these folks, and it’s certainly nice to get a warm welcome from the fur babies too.  (Funny how dogs can remember you even after so many years!)  This lab-loving family surprised me with their new addition.  Meet Ritter…

German Shorthair Pointer

He’s a German Shorthair Pointer (please correct me if I’m wrong), a well-trained hunter, and a bundle of energy.  He has a distinctive bear-shaped patch on his side and all those freckles!  Super fun to paint!  Here’s how we worked him into the existing mural….
