I have been doing some small sized dog portraits for a show. It will be at a local farmers market and they are having a bunch of dog related vendors. My dog groomer will be working in a food stand and needed help with another booth she was doing. So I will be "manning" that one and also showing and hopefully selling some of my little paintings. I'm also doing some bookmarks take...dog related.
The graphite is from a photo by Andy Mathis on Facebook, the chihuahua is from my photo, and the others are from photos from the Wetcanvas RIL.
Here are a few of the dog portraits.

I have nothing but medical issues this year. I am ready for them to stop. I just wish one would end before a second one emerges.
I had suffered a horrible allerlgic reaction that left my face looking like I had had a round with a fighter. Then last week I had a fall. Left me with my left side sore. Not sure If I broke a rib but the soreness felt like it. I'm still dealing with that.
I did get a couple of things finished. One was a painting of a friends's granddog. It is a Boston terrier named Max. It was a gift to her to give to her son.
And I am working on a graphite 3-person portrait for my niece. It will be a gift to her mom for her retirement. It is my niece and her brother each kissing their mom on the cheeks. I haven't worked on it since my fall but hopefully I can get back to it soon.
