Sasha Noel at 15


I seem to be on a dog painting mission lately.  We had to put our beloved Bichon, Sasha, down a few months ago.  I had done a quick study of her while she was still alive and healthy, but this past week, I had the urge to paint her again.  I really love this one because it captures her so well.  I didn't sketch before I began but jumped right in with simple strokes.  Her ear sticking up on the back of the couch is my favorite part.  I just came back from a few days at the ocean, and when I pulled up the photos I took, I was surprised at all the dogs I snapped pictures of.  It might be time to think about getting a new canine companion :-)
