This is a recent commission of a gorgeous, red standard poodle named “Olive Noel”. Almost life size, the picture is 34″ x 26″ and is painted in oils on Belgian linen.
Here’s what her guardian, Sarah, had to say about it:
“I got my stunningly beautiful Christmas present yesterday…a portrait of my baby, Olive Noel!! Kathy Maniscalco is a portrait artist from Santa Fe and her work is so beautiful!! My parents and I commissioned this piece from her and couldn’t be more happy or thrilled with it…informally, we’re calling it ‘Puppy in the Poppies!’ Check out Kathy’s other work at her studio website maniscalcofineart.com. Thank you for creating such a beautiful portrait that captures Olive’s personality so perfectly, Kathy!!! I just LOVE it!!!”
