As you can tell, I've been addicted to Cadmium Yellow lately. I can't seem to get enough. Anyway, this is Vinnie. A sweet pug who is dearly missed by my aunt and cousin. It's always so sad to paint pets who are no longer with us, but such a sweet reminder of what joy they brought. Hope you guys like this as much as I do.

My sister has three jack russells. For her birthday last year, Christmas last year and now her birthday this year, I have painted their portraits. This is the final one of Thomas. Thomas was her first jack russell so I felt a bit more pressure when painting this one but I think it worked out. It was supposed to be a surprise but while video chatting her I couldn't resist showing her. So it was mailed today and she should get it soon.I tried a new process to have the animated gif show off the process, we'll see if it works.
