IF: Contained


This is just a quick painting of my dog. My printer's on the fritz right now, so I couldn't print off a picture to guide me. I tried to get Trixie to pose for me, but as it is with puppies, it's hard to keep her energy contained. She sat still for brief moments of time with the promise of a treat. But, since it was my son giving her the treats, she was led into another room following his uncontainable energy.

Nessa The more I see your work the more I realize just how talented you really are in so many areas. That stuff you did for Finn for christmas was just great. I would never have of that. By the way, the doggie picture is just like him. Nanna
