I'm really excited about my next dog commission - those of you who follow dog blogs may be familiar with Twix, the "tweenie red Dachshund" from A Wiener Dog Blog. I was delighted when her mom emailed me about painting her portrait as a Christmas present for her daddy.
I looked through a lot of her photos, and this one screamed "PAINT ME!"
The above photo shows her sketched out on the canvas and ready for paint. Here is the original photo:
It's going to be so much fun to paint that sweet head tilt, those ears and eyes, (and the hearts on her collar...) The canvas size is 10 x 10 inches.
Remember, it's a surprise Christmas present, so don't leave any comments about the painting over on Twix's blog in case her daddy reads it! :-)
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone!
