This portrait made a lovely little gift for somebody’s Mothering Sunday. “Poppy” is a shih-tzu crossed with King Charles, and she was an absolute pleasure to paint. As usual, when I get photos to paint from, my models/sitters get fresh haircuts… so did Poppy of course! I feel so priviledged to bring smile to people’s faces.
