This is "Tanna"......she was a wonderful dog who belonged to friends of ours.  Thoroughly enjoyed painting her memory for our dear friends. Watercolour on 300lb Arches.

Here is "Magellan". He is a juvenile fox who was raised under a  deck with two siblings.  He was a fun commission to do, although I had a lot of hard lessons to learn about fur.  The owners love him!

Have gotten dear Madame X out hard to believe, but after putting her on the back burner I misplaced her!  Found her stored up against the wall behind my housecoats to protect her from passersby in the hall. Got a few more layers on the background and threw some salt in there for fun. After I finish up a few things that need to be done by next week I must try to get back to her.

 9" x 12" Arches 140 lb CP

Here is a sweet little girl. She will soon be 2 and she was frustrated by all the rain  keeping her from playing in the yard.  Her momma has this little portrait study hanging in her office.

I have always had a lot of trouble getting good results with salt and decided it was time to tame that monster.  Have got to work on getting better photos on the blog...can see the kitchen counter/wall on the edge here...sorry!
