I recently completed this gift commission of a handsome dog named "Akino" from photographs the client sent me. The outdoor setting is an area in Fairmount Park in the Philadelphia suburbs where I grew up. I have wonderful memories of running the beautiful trails there over 20 years ago. It was so much fun to paint this watercolor and a challenge as always with the customer's photos. I hope the newly married couple enjoys it as much as I did painting it!
