My Latest Painting

I was contacted by Mackenzie {pictured right} asking if I could paint a picture that had been taken of herself, her sister & their 2 dogs to give to her mother for Christmas. After she emailed the image to me I was so excited to take on the project! I knew that it would not be easy because most of the girls facial features were blown out by the flash on the photographers camera. I even had to get Mackenzie to email a picture of her teeth to me before I started so I could see how they are shaped!!! :)

Here is the original:

And about 17 hours later...

I had the best time with this project & am so proud of the way it turned out. The family has decided to have the painting put on an 16x20 canvas & framed in an antique gold frame. I can't wait to see this painting on canvas!!!

Awe thank you Ginger! I love doxies too..I've had my little Trixie for 9 years in Sept. I would love to have more if I didn't have a 3 year old :o)
I'll have to show you Trixie's painting.
