This is a commission piece for a friend. I have to admit that I get nervous when friends tell me they have a picture they want me to paint. My mind goes to the worst scenario. What a treat it was when Stacy showed me this wonderful photo of her Dad and his dog. A commission that was really fun to paint!! This is a surprise for her Mom's birthday. I painted this on a 20 x 24" canvas. So hapy to be more comfortable painting large canvases. Not such a stretch for me anymore.
So.... all's really good. Ready to loosen up a bit tomorrow with something that does not matter if it is representative. I may even venture outside into the beautiful weather.
