    Finally finished this thing. It only took forever with Aurelia screaming every time I mixed a new color.

    If anybody has some suggestions I'd love to hear them too, there are so many incredible artists here on Chaz.

    Wow thank you everybody! That's a good idea Grammy, never thought of that.

    It's acrylic painted on paper, which I will never do again because the paper got extremely wrinkly. Next time I'll use mat board. Though I did cheat, the brindle dog's stripes are made of colored pencil. Next time oil may be the way to go. It was really frustrating every time I mixed the color Aurelia would scream, so I'd go tend to her and by the time she was settled again it was totally dry, lol.

    I LOVE that, Romy . . . the style, the movement, the composition, the colors.

    We need a bigger pic of it!
