When IFWTWA, International Food Wine Travel Writers Association, wanted to honor our last President, Linda Kissam, for her years of work for the organization, I thought what better way than having the board give her a pastel drawing of her Scottish Terrier, Muffin. From my experience of giving the gift of a dog portrait, the recipient always knows who gave them this wonderful piece of art. Every time they look at the drawing, it reminds them of the donor. A dog portrait is a gift to be cherished.
Muffin, a two-year-old Scotty, goes with Linda and her husband on many of her travels. This Scottish Terrier is seaworthy as the Kissam’s spend their summers on a boat, their summer home in Seattle. I am sure if Muffin could talk, she would tell about many of the adventures and life onboard.
Choosing a lavender background, I accented the hair with bits of lavender and red to bring life and character to Muffin.

If you would like to commission a dog portrait or give a gift of a pet portrait, please email Cori for more information. I love creating drawings of any animal, whether it is a cat, dog, horse, or wildlife.
