Here's a change of pace. This is my little dog Lulu. Nikki will have to wait another day for her portrait. Then maybe I'll do the kid's dogs. I have been so impressed with the dog portraits in the 30 day painting challenge that other artists have posted on Leslie Saeta's blog - I could not resist trying my first dog portrait. It's not a good painting in any sense, but it looks like Lulu. My grandkids loved it just now when I came in from the studio with it. Candis took a pic and it's probably on Facebook by now. Lulu is now curled up on my lap as I type.
