More Puppies

Meet Boozha, Saskia, Lucy, Dante, and Mia. In that order. These pups were put to panel after our friend Melissa saw Rider hanging on Penina’s wall. Excited to take on the challenge of capturing more puppy personalities, I gladly accepted the job, and in the end, she eagerly gifted them on to her mother as a personalized birthday surprise.

Based on Melissa’s suggestions of background colors, props, and photos of the real deal, I conjured up sketches with the help of my trusty friend Photoshop, drew them onto wood panel, and painted them to life. After whipping out my paints, teeny tiny brushes, and warm bowls of water, I realized that I was just too darn excited to see the final results. So before I knew it (and losing all track of time), I hungrily finished all five on a lazy Sunday, gave myself the proverbial pat on the back, and went to sleep a happy lady.

The best part? I wasn’t the only one who was happy. Melissa’s reaction was priceless, and I couldn’t have asked for a more satisfying scream of joy. And boy, do I mean scream. Ouch (with love, Melissa). Now, if only I can squeeze in the time to brush up some mini art of our own beloved furballs. I must say, our fuzzy children would look mighty cute up on the wall. Oh, always the biased mother.

  1. Hailey, I’m actually slated to do 4 different cats! Get in touch if you’re serious, and I can give you more information. You know where to find me :)

  2. Seriously LOVE them!! How about instead of any baby gifts, you do one of these for me :):) Then you won’t have to subject yourself to baby stuff…which I know is not your cup of tea anyway!

    1. Kelly – interesting. So you’re saying no baby gifts, and just puppy paintings for you? We both win! When you have a moment, let me know what you have in mind.

  3. ah! finally with the puppy paintings- I’ve been waiting to see more of these from you. They’re super cute. How big are these?
