Dog Portraits, Willow, Gypsy and Zac



Apologies for the very poor shot but the weather is awful, we have severe weather warnings for the area and the snow has fallen and is still falling at a ridiculous rate, in a few hours we will be snowed in again even with the truck it will prove a nightmare to get down the narrow lanes to the main road so I'm not planning on going anywhere soon!
I have already fallen by the wayside with my art plans and spent a considerable amount of time updating my website, I expect if you visit it, you probably won't notice anything has happened, but believe me it has! I've added my new gift certificates designs and I think they look pretty good. I do intend to add some more soon plus I've added a new header image to all pages plus here on my blog.
Anyway, I did make myself get on with some more of this portrait....spot the deliberate mistake! The brown used for the vine stems has now changed colour, I've been working the background on the back of the film and it wasn't until I turned everything over to take a photo that I noticed. I'm going to ponder on it for a while but I think my best course of action will be to use the front of the film to correct the error rather than trying to remove the later stems as I think it could drive me mad!!!
Also some good news, one of my portrait commissions from Christmas has gained me another order so they must have liked it! I've also had a personal visit from Ace and Badger's owner when she came to say thank you for her portraits, which was fantastic news.
Off to find some wood to burn on the fire now, it's freezing here and unfortunately we've ran out of coal and our wood pile has got a bit wet so it's not burning too well!!!
