Cavalier King Charles dog gifts your friends are going to LOVE
It's a cute little gem of Cavalier kitchen décor for your refrigerator
My magnets make fabulous, high-quality, low cost gifts. Tara (and other Cavaliers in my shop) are perfect Cavalier King Charles dog gifts for folks who love the breed. My magnets are made by hand, by me, so they’re unique King Charles Spaniel gifts your recipients have probably not seen before! She’s the most endearing Cavalier kitchen dog you’ll ever find!
My portrait of Tara was inspired by this portrait of Countess Anne Marie Louise Thélusson. It was painted by Jacques Louis David in 1790. Tara’s original oil painting was a commission, and her people chose brighter colors. They had a connection with the sea, so we created a seaside background.
Okay, so I’m a Pug person, who wouldn’t be absolutely captivated by the adorable King Charles Spaniel? This is sweet little Tara, and the photo I used to paint her portrait. I think the painting turned out quite nicely, but honestly, with a subject like Tara, how could I go wrong?
You’ll find many prints, and over 100 magnets in my shop. I’ve painted so many more portraits than that. They all start with either a picture of an animal or an historical portrait. From there, the creative process starts. I look for just the right fit; animal, attire, and pose. Then I sketch it, and then paint it.
Have you ever thought of your refrigerator as a blank gallery wall, waiting for a captivating exhibit? If you’re an animal lover, you can create some pretty adorable art shows. All of my animals are well trained to sit and stay on a refrigerator.
