The Pups

5 x 7" oil on canvas $100

Well, I blew off Monday. Minimum 4 per week right? The good news is that when I decided not to paint and play hooky instead with the hubs, I was vexed and distracted. Apparently, I should work when work is scheduled.

These amazing little furry friends are Gracie and Roscoe. They belong to our friends. We go over to their place to jam about once a month. I've been trying to spirit them away in my guitar case, but to no avail. I thought this would be the next best thing.

I loved the experience of painting pets small! Having done commissioned pets on much larger canvasses, I was astounded when I finished this is less than 4 hours! I miss getting the reflection and highlights in the eyes but I think they read well. I am definitely going to include more pets in my dailies.

So glad to be back to work.
