Terrier pet portrait

A couple more updates on Snoop's pet portrait, I'm still working around the nose area! I had not planned on working in a circular motion but once I'd noticed it, it seems to be all I think about as I'm busy beavering away!
This was after a bit more was completed but it would have been more but I became obsessed with the tennis (Murray v Roddick) and all of a sudden I felt quite old, I remember my first viewing of tennis when I was at primary school and a teacher took us for a walk, half way around it tipped down with rain and we went to her house, low and behold she put the tennis on to keep us quiet and I was hooked. Since my years of watching all the grandslams (some via teletext before cable was invented) I remember Jimmy Conners and John McConroe then Boris Becker and Stefan Edberg's battles the most and it was a nice change today to think a Brit could go all the way, alas it was not meant to be, but I was glued to my tele in the garden (I had to let my rabbits out) all afternoon! My excuse for the next few weeks is the tour de france so be prepared for more stoppages!
And I'm glad to report my passion flower has decided to breath again, after the hard frosts of the winter (hard frosts seem a long time ago after the week of heat waves we've had) I though it had given up the ghost and was ready to dig it up, then suddenly it sprang back to life, it covers my rabbit shed and looks lovely in the summer so I am happy it didn't quite flake out on me!
And this week at work has been hard, we were down to a two man crew plus the heat was just painful, even Willow had tired paws!
Although she did recover enough to pose with her best friend Gypsy.

I'm loving the Snoop portrait! And that passion flower is gorgeous! I know what you mean about the cold weather seeming so far away right now, lol.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I'm so glad I did as it means I found yours too. Your work is so beautiful and I love seeing the work in progress shots.

I remember the days of Conners, McConroe, Edberg and Becker too. I used to be an avid Wimbledon follower back then. At school, instead of P.E. lessons we were allowed to watch Wimbledon - much more my speed than running around in the hot weather ;o)
