Oil Painting of Bailey

My first post and about something that makes me smile: my puppy! Ok, so she’s eleven years old but she’ll always be my puppy. I can’t believe I haven’t painted her until now but this was one of the most enjoyable paintings I’ve done recently. One, it only took two sessions to complete, almost unheard of for me! Two, with some professional advice, I think I got the painting to where I want it to be. It’s always hard with a person or pet you know to get the features exactly right so it looks just like him or her to you, the artist. I think that, combined with the looser style I was able to embrace makes this one of my favorites. Here’s Bailey!
