Gracious Gretchen

20x16 oil on gallery wrapped canvas

I've been painting but was not satisfied with anything that I thought was post worthy.  How excited was I when I learned a winner of my donated pet portrait for my local SPCA's fundraising auction contacted me with an adorable furry family member to paint.  The winner is going to make this a present and asked if I could make it larger than the size she won for the auction.  We agreed the 20x16 was going to make a wonderful gift.  I decided to use a head shot from one photo and the body pose from another.  I smiled through out the whole painting process because who wouldn't love this adorable pooch!
