Dog portrait, Patton the rottweiler

Well it's been a good day for me, there was too much snow to get onto the main road about a mile away so it was a day at home, yippee do. Willow, Zac and I all went for a walk to the lovely named Kettle Bottom down past the edge of the garden (see my new header image which I saved straight away), I took lots of photos and even captured a buzzard sat on the telegraph pole in the bottom orchard but when I put my sd card into the computer it said I needed to format it which stupidly I agreed to without thinking and I've lost all of my images on the card. Aaargh, I'm so annoyed, it's happened before and if I don't format I can still see the images anyway. Big thumbs, big fingers, big sulk. To calm my temper I put the finishing touches to Patton the rottweiler at the water's edge as you can see above.

Thanks Sarah, this one seems to have been ongoing for a long time as I stopped to do the snow leopards half way through! I'm really pleased with the rocks on this one.

Kari, You portraits are amazing! I like the way your blog is set up too. Hmm. I can take a lesson!

Hi Nancy, I can take credit for the art so thank you very much for your comments, however as for my blog layout I'm afraid I really am a novice, if you scroll all the way down to the bottom of my blog you can visit the site where I borrowed the template from and use one yourself!

I agree, your blog layout is great. And Patton is looking so strong and handsome. I really look forward to watching the progress!

Sorry about your SD card. I hate when that happens. Love your Rotty though. It's magnificent.

Beautiful drawing of Patton! I've been honored enough to meet Patton and he's just a darling!
