Jean Monti creates splendid scenes with realism and sensitivity. Known for her rich textures and luminous skin tones, Monti seeks to evoke an emotional response in all of her paintings, as evidenced by her delightful Puppy Love.
“When I decided to paint this little girl, I had a totally different concept in mind. My husband and I had just added a new member to our family — a little black and white puppy — and this little girl and the puppy had an instant connection. She would tease the puppy with her teddy bear, and the puppy would yelp and wag its tail, and then you would hear the sweetest giggle.”
“I knew that I had the opportunity to capture a moment that was so natural and real. I wanted to share it with everyone so that they, too, could experience the same joy.” — Jean Monti
