After a bit of a mishap with the yellow background paint, this one is finally finished today – just waiting for the paint to dry so it can be imaged. The painting is based on a beautiful photo taken at a friend’s wedding by Justine Johnson Photograph. Thank you Cathy Connor and Justine Johnson, for allowing me to use this photo as a reference for my painting! Initially I wasn’t planning to include the flowers around Sophie’s neck, but an artist friend encouraged me. At times I though it would take longer to get the flowers looking right, than the overall painting of Sophie – but in the end, I am happy with the result. This one is titled “Flower Girl” and will be entered into the Irving Arts Assocation Fine Art Pet Portrait competition in September. Wish me luck!

I made the deadline this go around, for the next online  Canine Art Guild Show – “It’s A Dog’s Life”. Take a peek at the wonderful dog art – and vote for the people’s choice award! Included in the mix are my paintings of Bob (Big ‘ol Boy)  – It Wasn’t Me – pictured below, Fleur de Lab (which is looking oddly dark online, even though he is a black lab), and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel – Roxy Heart. Here is the link to the show: http://www.canineartguild.com/gallery/
