This smiley girl is Sami. She is a Rat Terrier/Australian Cattle Dog mix. I had the pleasure of painting her "brother" Lyle's portrait two years ago. Sadly, Sami is no longer with us, and has gone to be with her brother Lyle at the Rainbow Bridge.
This happy portrait is going to be a wonderful way for her family to remember her.
The drawing is finished, now she's ready for paint. This is going to be such a fun portrait!
