Rosie & Rainier

Rainier (the dog) showed up as a stray when he was a puppy. He had quirky habits like running into people’s rooms and putting his nose on them just to check on them.

He’s a Saint

His name really portrays his personality. He is a saint at heart! He was rescued from a shelter about a year ago and he adjusted really well with his new family.

I filled in his face with a pastel French Grey and Raw Umber using a technique called “burnishing”. I have used this technique before, in fact IContinue reading “In Memory of Beau”
