My friend Sharon has two adorable Chihuahuas, Jake and Elwood (a gold star to anyone who gets the reference to those names). These two paintings are of Elwood. Jake's portraits are coming soon.
Finishing my second portrait of Elwood (green background) proved to be very therapeutic. A week ago I had surgery and I've been recovering (horizontally) ever since. Today I felt up to painting and three hours later I finally feel like me again. Woo hoo! This painting will be displayed at a silent auction, to which I will be donating a custom dog portrait. The event, called In Living Pink, benefits the Young Survival Coalition, an organization dedicated to breast cancer awareness--specifically the occurrence of breast cancer in women under age 40.
(Sharon I hope you like it!!)
