I had a commission this holiday season. A man requested a portrait of his wife with their dog, Hiccup. What a fabulous name for a dog! Pet portrait commissions come to me almost every year around Christmas. I wonder if I should start marketing myself as a pet portrait artist? With the busyness of the holiday season, however, I actually forgot to scan the final piece, which is too bad, because it involved some heavy-duty carving and looked kind of neat. Next time!
Here are the two photos I took of it in progress:
And the sketch (which I scanned, whew - got one thing right!)
