Very excited right now about the other painting I'm doing.  Working with Miriam Durkin in Charlotte in a large portrait class (people).  I love painting people as well as dogs.  It is a special pleasure to have a model sit for me.  There is something so magical about seeing the subtleties of light when you have someone sit for you.  There are colors there that you never see in a photo.  Of course with dogs a photo is really the only way you can paint them --- unless they're asleep of course.  Next post I'll talk about some of the ways to get a good photo of your dog.  Love your puppy!!
