A quick post as I have lots to do this afternoon/evening, but wanted to show where I am at with the Rough Collie portrait I'm currently working on. Meet Farley, or at least some of him ........

A Work in Progress

I could have got a better scan looking at it now on screen but it'll pass - better ones in next post!

Update: Not so good image removed and better one put in its place - feel a lot better now:)

Hi, I'm Farley's 'mum' & the portrait is going to be a gift for Christmas, but I couldn't resist a peek now (I'm allowed, by the way!) You have captured his personality so well and he looks as stunning in your painting as he does in real life. Can't wait to have it hanging up. Thank you so much.

Hi Lesley, for a moment there I thought I had spoilt your Christmas present, phew! I'm delighted you are happy with how your portrait is progressing and thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment on my blog - it's always great to hear from the mum or dad:-D

Thank you Rebecca and Elena:-D
