I received a commission to paint a portrait of Stella, one sweet little doggie. I really like Stella but she does not like me. When I visit her she just smells "CAT" on me and keeps her distance. Makes me sad to think that a little cat hair gives her the willies. Stella's mom took a great photo of her. Black dogs are so hard to catch where their eyes show and their coats have light in them. Here is my finished painting. "Stella" will be a center piece in my display at the GSR fine arts show this December. I want to let other people learn about pet portraits by Margie. ;-)
The photo has a glare on the upper right hand but that doesn't take away from Stella's calm gaze.
