A Puppy Commission!

Yes, and not only a puppy commission, but a Rat Terrier puppy commission! This is Ruth, and she is four months old. What a face! This painting was so much fun, from her little name tag to her wee nose to the ornery look in her eye. I love it all.

Here are a few work in progress photos:

I hope you enjoyed this painting as much as I did! 

For more cute Rat Terrier art, there's a new painting of Cloud on my daily painting blog today:

Much love,

Hi Kathleen! What a wonderful painting again! You really catch the 'look' of the dogs! I can feel how this puppy is looking at me and thinking ...

Hi Riley and Teje, thanks for the nice comments.
Teje, her 'look' captivated me right away. A dogs face is so expressive, and I love to try to capture that.
