'Viggo' oil on canvas by RK Schlueter

It's such an honor to be commissioned to paint someone's pet. After having done a lot of this kind of work, I feel it's the most serious and rewarding painting I do. There is an intimacy about it that charms me. I know this relationship and it's a very beautiful thing in our lives.


  1. Viggo sure fits him and I feel like I know him because of the wonderful job you did of this portrait.

  2. You have such a way of making us feel the 'presence' of the animal.
