Rosco – a Jack Russell Terrier Portrait

Here's my portrait of Rosco, one of my favorite Jack Russell Terriers.

Anyone familiar with the breed knows that these little fellas are blessed (or cursed, depending on your point of view) with a personality way out of proportion to their size.

Rosco is no different. We met him while visiting friends in Albuquerque a few years back. He instantly won me over with his friendly and playful manner, so I was thrilled to do a portrait of him for Christmas 2019.

  1. Hi Steve….this is Lynn (Trimble) Jagosh and I love your dog portraits. We just lost our Pekingese Bailey and I would love to get a portrait of him for my husband Dave. Do you have a price list and how do I go about ordering?? Thanks Steve!!
