IGGY

8x10 oil on canvas sold

Iggy was a commissioned portrait I did before Christmas.

Today was so busy, I worked on a landscape commission, tomorrow it will be an animal painting and some time this weekend I have to begin painting in Camille Olsen's moleskine. I have put off working in her book long enough, time to brush off the intimidation and just move on. Camille's portrait of her husband in her moleskine is amazing, take a look at it on her blog or on the flying moleskin blog.

Today, my parents adopted a little Shih-Tzu just like this one. Her name is Bell, but Mom likes to call her Miss Bella. I'm certain Miss Bella will be on canvas shortly. Thank you for visiting, take care!!

Angela, this is my favorite yet of your pet portraits. That beautiful crimson background just sets Iggy off to his finest! Thank you for the link to Camille's blog too; her work is beautiful too!

Hi Angela, Iggy looks like our last dog of many years ago, so I especially love this painting! Hope all is going well with you, does sound like you are busy, and that's a good thing. We'll have to meet for lunch again when things slow down.
