"HE IS YOUR FRIEND, YOUR PARTNER, YOUR DEFENDER, YOUR DOG.  YOU ARE HIS LIFE, HIS LOVE, HIS LEADER. HE WILL BE YOURS, FAITHFUL AND TRUE, TO THE LAST BEAT OF HIS HEART.  YOU OWE IT TO HIM TO BE WORTHY OF SUCH DEVOTION."       - Unknown

"I recently had the opportunity to have a portrait done by Ed and I would do it again in a heartbeat!  Ed, using only a black and white photo and brief personal meeting with Theodore (my pug), presented me with a treasure that no money could buy.  Everyone who has seen the portrait has the same reaction.  First, a little chuckle, then "That's Theodore!"  I have, and will continue to highly recommend to anyone who has the chance that they let Ed Hofer capture their loved ones on canvas forever."                                          S & T - Chattanooga, TN

View Ed's one-of-a-kind dog paintings.  All work is original and sold in art galleries, through commission, auctioned at a charity/rescue event, or for sale online at the Store.  


Ed's use of bold colors and design have made his dog paintings popular.  He has many clients with multiple paintings,  whether its different dog breeds or adding a wildlife or landscape painting to their collection.


The eyes and expressions are usually the first things to catch your attention in his dog  paintings.  Maybe that's no coincidence.  For Ed, the eye is the first thing he paints.  He feels the eye lets him look into the soul of the dog and it helps guide the direction of the painting.  For some, the painted eyes even hold a special treasure.  (Check out the eyes in 'Reflection' and 'Eying the Tetons'.)
