Good Monday morning. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I’m still working on the large number of orders that have come in over the last couple of weeks, mostly pet portraits. I do have one landscape commission that I’ve finished and will post this week. The rest will be the early stages on the new pet portraits. I’m doing a staging of all the portraits; that is, I’m doing them all in the same stage: beginning, block in and finished. So right now I have about 12 on the floor in my studio in various stages. Here’s the first of the first. This is Samantha. She has a lot of coat, so the change will be profound next time. Enjoy and have a good Monday.
