Tessa Guze, Neck n Neck, Wine Label 2011
This is a painting I did for a wine label exhibition run by the (no name) Art Group, at B Square Gallery. The (no name) art group asked 50 artists each to create wine labels. Wine bottles where sold at the opening with the buyers choice of wine label. The proceeds went to raise money for Philabundance, a charity that fights hunger in the Philadelphia area. The artists had the choice to sell there paintings for personal profit or to donate the proceeds to Philabundance, I choose to do the latter and I am very excited that my piece sold!

This is a portrait of the street dog who lived on the steps of my building in New Delhi. Despite being neglected, dismissed and verbally abused he remained a sweet, friendly and cheeky animal!
Thank you for visiting my blog!
As a people and animal portrait painter I believe that a successful portrait is not just a copy of what the subject looks like, but it is also a lasting reflection of the subject's character and personality (whether human or animal). For the artist, this requires getting to know the subject in a very profound way. I love getting to know new people and animals and finding ways to make my paintings reflect their personality and presence.
If you are interested in commissioning a portrait of one of your pets or a painting of a favorite animal please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Prices are negotiable. Additionally some of the paintings featured here will be for sale so if your interested please also shoot me and email!
I also do portraits of people or portraits of people with their animals (you can get your whole family done)!
