This is a 7×5 oil painting for my little sister of her dog Bindi. I am seriously considering doing pet portraits for a while. When I started out drawing as a kid, all I wanted to draw were horses. My love for animals has not changed, nor has my enjoyment in painting them. It is fun to capture their unique expressions. It is also a real pleasure to see their owner’s reaction to the picture when finished. So although I love landscapes and trees, I think I am going to take a side road ( = and do some animals for a while. Perhaps I will do both, but we shall see what kind of response I get.
