Mick's Dogs

A few months ago my husband told me our friend Mick from the local coffee shop wanted me to paint a portrait of his three dogs.  It was to be a gift for his wife.  This was a surprise since I didn't think Mick knew that I did any type of artwork.  I thought it was very brave of him to trust me to do an acceptable birthday painting for his wife's gift.  Mick emailed some photos of the three dogs which were taken with his phone.  Oh my, not such good references for me to paint from.  But after I got started with a good drawing I really had fun painting this.  I was very happy to give this to Mick, my first commission.  He loved it and his wife was thrilled!
