i haven't posted about any of my projects for awhile, but i've been hard at work on christmas stuff and a commissioned painting.
brandon's aunt has a dog that she pretty much loves more than her own husband and children. (i'm not exaggerating.) his name is buddy. this summer, when she found out i quit teaching to stay home and make art, she commissioned me to paint a portrait of li'l buddy.
this is one of the photographs i used as a reference...
and this is the result...
(the color on this photo is a bit off because i took the pic at night, but you get the point.)
i was able to give it to her at thanksgiving, and she loved it!
don't worry. they've gotten another dog recently...so i'll be painting that one too. :)
