Dachshund commission - Twix!!!

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!

Hi Cloud
I bet you'll be lots of help to Mom during this project. I can see you sitting right by her feet ready to offer advice.
This is very exciting. We can hardly wait until you finish.
Madi and Mom

We just know it will be beautiful. We should have done this for our Dad with a pic of our sweet Dakota.

Can't wait to follow the progress of this one.

Woos, the OP Pack
