Miles and Bobby: custom portraits on wood slices.

Miles and Bobby are painted on a 3" diameter (approx) Canadian Birch wood slice.  The owner wants to display the ornaments all year long in her home.

I chose a lime green background because the owner told me that both dogs enjoyed going to a city park with her. I especially like Miles the Whippet's look of pure joy as he runs off leash!

Dogs live about 12 years, and that's why they discovered this brilliant philosophy: because time is limited, there is no time to be unhappy. Mehmet Murat Ildan.

Custom pet portraits are great gifts any time of the year. Visit the Custom Pet Portraits page on my website for more information.

Bobby the Boston Terrier


Bobby the Boston Terrier has a sad look on his little face, but that is just the way he was made. However, inside his little puppy heart, he is quite content.

And why not? He is well-loved and cared for by his little family. Besides, each day, he gets to run and play in the off-leash park with his long-legged brother. Bobby does his best to keep up and Miles, recognizing that Bobby needs more time for his short legs to catch up, will run back to Bobby as if to say, "Hurry up! Can't you go any faster?"

Miles the Whippet


Miles looks ecstatic as his owner unclips him from the leash.  He has the whole park to himself and he sees ducks and swans by the river.  This is going to be a great day!
