But I wanted to share two commissions that I finished for Christmas. Sad story behind the first one, I met my client, and the cute little chi. We discussed the portrait, all was good. Then 3 days later he emailed me and told me that she got out in the road, and was hit by a car ... she never made it. I felt awful. So this first one turned into a memorial instead of a Christmas gift. Poor little Tequila - she was an absolutely adorable little dog. This second one is for a client who is giving it to her hubby for Christmas. This dog is just about the most handsome guy I've ever seen. I loved doing both of these portraits, and the clients provided great reference photos, which is always a bonus! I've got more in the wings, and I also have a contest coming up for a free 5"x7" pencil portrait in the New Year. Thanks for looking!!!
