When I received the commission to draw a border terrier I was really excited, not only that, I was asked to draw him twice. One was a gift for christmas and the other a beautiful piece to put in their home.
It was the first time I had to do the same photo twice so I decided to draw them side-by-side. This photo is so cute with his tongue sticking out and I immediately fell in love with him.
I really love Christmas commissions, they are all done in secret, from arrangement, to previews and delivery. Here is one I did for a fellow dog walker I see most mornings, it was a gift to her husband.
With gifts it is a little sad not to know the reaction of the person when they see it, however I was sent a great video of him opening it. It made my Christmas morning xx
I am thrilled to reveal these hand painted christmas baubles that I will be selling at the Sale Arts Trail Christmas Bazaar on the 27th November. Can’t make it there, no worries as I’ll be listing them on my Etsy shop soon.
I’ve just treated myself to some new pastel pencils and couldn’t wait to do a drawing. As most people that know me well will tell you… I have a real love of pets, especially dogs. So here is another one fresh off the easel. Have a happy Monday x
