Photobombed

“My husband surprised me on my 40th birthday with an amazing painting by Naomi of our Pilates studio, complete with our gorgeous boxer dog in the garden. I absolutely love it. Naomi’s attention to detail and careful compositions are extraordinary. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her. In fact, I am about to commission a painting for my father’s 70th birthday next year.”

I’m often asked to do paintings in secret as surprise gifts. It can make getting reference photos difficult, but I’m always up for a challenge. In this painting, I ended up adding the boxer on the lawn because she insisted on posing every time I tried to take a photo. I did this as a surprise for the commissioning customers, and they loved it. It wouldn’t have been their house without the dog.
