Dog Portrait

Walter bJust for a change of pace, I recently painted a portrait of a friend’s beloved dog.  It will be a gift. I used to be an illustrator, and loved to draw and paint animals, so this was a return to this activity. With the exception of my deplorable calligraphy, it was fun and easy.

In fact, it felt good to have something go so easily! Icons can be such a struggle at times, technically and spirituality.  It was relaxing and fun to make this portrait of Walter the rescue dog.
