30 Sighthounds in 30 Days - Day 1


Day 1, Scottish Deerhound Puppy

What better way to kick off the New Year than with a baby! This is Fling, a Scottish Deerhound puppy. If you're unfamiliar with the breed, I suggest you look them up, because they are big, gorgeous, noble and ancient. If you've been to a Renaissance Faire, you've probably seen them. I'm told by Fling's owner that she is growing like a weed and gaining 10 lbs a month!

I'm joining Leslie Saeta's artist challenge during the month of January where we paint 30 paintings of the subject of our choice. I decided on 30 days of Sighthound paintings and asked for submissions from sighthound owners on facebook. The results were overwhelming - both in the number of submissions and the quality of photos. Stay tuned, this is going to be fun!
