Family Portrait

14"x11" acrylic on masonite

I enjoyed painting this portrait commission. It was very challenging, but I am happy with the results. I must say that this is probably my most successful portrait to date. Looking forward to the next one.

  1. Brad, your enjoyment came through to the canvas. This couple must be extremely pleased with the results. I love the way you captured the difference of expressions between the couple and the dog.

  2. This evening I overviewed your paintings and thought: why isn't he doing more portraits? They are so nice. About half an our later: this beautiful painting with two very nice portraits and a lovely dog. Why isn't he doing more dogs?:)
