A lovely lady from Spain commissioned me to paint a portrait of her beloved pet Messi, a rare Ratonero Murciano. For those who don’t know, Ratonero is Spanish for mouser, a Murciano is someone who comes from the region of Murcia in the SE of Spain.
The photo that she gave me to work from had the dog’s favourite blanket in it and I just had to paint the cute owls and cupcake pattern on it. So sweet. She was very happy with it and will be taking the portrait back home with her after her visit with her family.
