What’s Going on in the Studio?

I'm so behind in showing off the beautiful pets I've been painting this Spring. I'll get there eventually!  I wrapped up this darling portrait of Daisy this Memorial weekend. It was a Christmas gift to a wonderful Mother, and the dog was a treat to paint.  Now I'm working on another pet portrait of a dog that looks very much like Bubba!
