Sam Robinson is having a show of his pet portraits at Halcyon House Antiques, beginning Saturday, October 11th.
And he’s accepting commissions for portraits of man’s (or woman’s) best friend to be completed in time for the Christmas holidays.
Sam spends time with the dogs, getting to know them and their personalities, and takes pictures to help recall their spirits while he’s painting. Then he heads to his studio and starts the painting.Sam is a master at catching the spark in the dog’s eye, the shading of his coat, and the particular angle at which the dog holds his paw or cocks his head.Sam’s style is referred to as Expressive Realism, and with simple and effective brushstrokes, he grasps the essence that makes the dog so special to its owners.
In addition to Sam’s paintings, Halcyon House Antiques will have some of Rebecca Vizard’s BViz Fortuny dog collars and leashes. These are seriously gorgeous and your dog will be so unbelievably chic wearing one of these.
Come on out to Halcyon House and see the exhibition starting Saturday, or join us for a drink on Friday evening. We’d love to see you, and we know you will love Sam’s portraits…
And seriously, it’s not too early to think about shopping for the holidays!
Please RSVP to Eric so we’ll have enough booze!
