Three years ago this week, I decided to start this page after discovering I had a little knack (and sole interest in) for drawing people portraits. To my surprise, my first two commissions was for ‘doggy’ portraits. I remember thinking, “Well, if it has a face I can probably do it.” 😊.
This portrait of ‘Lola and Bella’ was one of those commissions. I love this drawing because it represents a sort of ‘open door’ to an area of drawing I hadn’t considered. They gave me confidence. Since drawing these two, I’ve completed several animal drawings and I love doing them! Expressing the soul of an animal via pencil is just as exciting to me as it is for people.
To have discovered this gift at such a late time in my life is one of my greatest blessings… and in our crazy world, I hope a quick scroll through my page brings all kinds of smiles and warmth to your day.
☮️ 💖 and HAPPY NEW YEAR! 🎉
