Latest in my Soft Pastel Dog Series

I wanted to paint something fun and easy after the Venice painting, so I decided to add to my dog series.  I definitely think the idea of painting the same subject repeatedly has merit.  Of course, I know my subject very well, but I feel like I'm improving in certain areas.  Or maybe that's just my imagination.  This one didn't take me very long, though, so at the very least I'm improving in speed.

This is yet another gorgeous pup painting, Kari! I love that we get a bit more glimpe of that sweet little face. It's always tough to pick but I admit this is my favorite so far. Splendid!!
