Wow! I am amazed at how long it's been since I've been on here. There are six or seven pantings in progress just now but have only just finished this one the other day. It was a commission for a lady's father for a birthday i believe. The black dog is not here any longer and they wanted to remember her in this way. I was pleased to be a part of this and enjoy doing dog paintings so much. It might have rekindled the painting muse too! That is a good thing.
