On more than one occasion, I went to bed without drawing a dog, which meant a lot of doubling-up on other days. But I'm determined to get the 7 done by the end of each week.....This week featured some cuties, which, once I could find the time, were a pleasure to sketch.
Thanks to those who have contributed photos. I have more than 30 at this point, so I've had to turn some people down recently. I appreciate the support!
Recently I received two e-mails from up-and-coming pet portrait artists who each said that I am inspiring them. Woo hoo! That is so cool! It's extra special because not too long ago, I was just starting this business and a very special artist was an inspiration to me. She has been incredibly gracious and generous with her kind words and sound advice, and she continues to inspire me. I'm happy to pay it forward!
Ready for their close-up: Tanner the Viszla, Brutus the Black Lab, Quincy the Mutt, Kirby the Shih Tzu, Holly the Border Collie mix, Vinny the Labradoodle, and Molly the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. (Hey! Five out of the seven names end in "y"!)
