Okay, is this a cuteness overload or what???
I've always shy'd away from sketching people and puppies.... there's something so personal about capturing "that" look, but I faced my fear this past summer and gave it a go!! The first two or three I tried over and over again. Pen and ink, watercolor, colored pencil and combinations of these mediums and .... I had so much fun!! I've still got a way to go, but I am hooked!!
These two above I did for a friend, as a Christmas gift to her daughter and I must say I giggled the whole time I was working on them.
"That face, those eyes".... I kept saying to myself.
But then just before Christmas, another friend asked if I did pet portraits so I showed her these and she asked if I would do one for her son-in-law whose precious companion "Parker" of 15 years crossed over the "Rainbow Bridge" just a few weeks before Christmas. Like the previous two, I kept saying to myself "That face, those eyes" but with such a different emotion, my heart was breaking.
I love what I do!
For me, it's so much more than doing a sketch of a house or a dog. It's the memories, it's the hopes and dreams for the future, it's LOVE!
Whether it's found in the walls of your home or in the eyes of our beloved furry friends, I am blessed beyond words to be able to share these things with you!
