It’s been so long and so much has happened! Our sweet princess is now three months old, and we’re all doing well. She’s starting to get into her laughing and giggling phase which is a major payoff for those first couple months of crying and fussing. And like any good parent, I will do absolutely anything to make her smile. Ah, motherhood is delightful!
In the midst of all of this, I have finally finished yet another pet portrait. Koda’s owner, Jeff, showed that final piece to a coworker of his, Cheri. After taking off several months to prepare for birth and care for our little one, I got back to work and sent out her commission!
And the final painting:
I have been having a blast getting to know all these pups and working with a variety of mediums and canvases. I have to thank my husband, too, for giving me a second opinion and helping me see past my biases on these pieces to make them the best they can be.
Also, in case anyone is wondering, my full website that I had been paying for is no longer available. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t getting much traffic while this blog has multiple followers, so I’m going to try to upgrade this site’s domain name soon instead and send all traffic here. Thank you again so much to all of you who are following these updates! It means a lot to me! If you have any questions, comments, or something you’d like to see here, please let me know!
