Happy Birthday Marc!

Penguin Art

Happy Birthday to my amazing husband Marc! He's such a caring and supportive man! He's truly is my partner in life! His favorite animal is the penguin, so I made this card I made for him! (There seems to be a lack of Happy Birthday cards with penguins on them! )

German Shepherd - Boreas

German Shepherd

German Shepherd Dog

I finished up a commissioned pastel portrait of Boreas. He was a beautiful German Shepherd own by a very talented dog trainer. Thanksgiving was the anniversary of when he was brought home as a puppy and Lori wanted to have the portrait arrive to honor the time they shared together. Portraits like this are important to me as well. As a pet owner, I know how hard it is to say goodbye and it's an honor to give owners another way to keep the relationship close to their heart.

This portrait was created on Hannemuhle Velour paper, primarily using PanPastels to create texture and detail in the fur.
