Max's Ink Drawing

 Max

ink
Max is a Borgie (Border Collie/Corgie mixture). He is very cute and friendly. But during Art Walk, he was a little to interested in everything going on around him so I took a photo of him and worked from the photo to get his dimensions correct. Then I looked at him for the details. He held pretty still if I scratched his chin with my left hand while drawing with my right hand.

Harry's Ink Drawing

Harry is such fun guy and full of energy. He is a Wheaten Terrier. But, he sat for his portrait like a professional model because his smart Mom walked him from their home to Art Walk. I think she said it was three miles and it was a warm, sunny day.

Raini's Ink Drawing

Raini
This is the only photo I managed to take during Art Walk of a dog with it's finished portrait. Raini was cooperative as long as I was willing to sit on the floor. Art Walk got a little hectic at times. Patrons were encouraged to sign their dogs up for a sitting but I had a lot of walk ins.

Rico's coat was perfect for an ink drawing. It allowed for some fun lines. He was also a very good, still model.

Dynamic Duos

Chassi and Mystic

During Art Walk, I had two different requests for drawings containing two pets. Both were to be done from photographs. Waylon and Willie had both recently passed away. Chassi was present but Mystic was rightfully at home. Chassi (pit bull) and Mystic (cat) are best friends. Their owner showed me numerous cute photographs of them hanging out together.

Look Who Made the Paper



These two color photos were in Salida, Colorado's newspaper the Monday after Art Walk weekend. The reporter came by early in the day when I was warming up by drawing one of the dogs in doggy day care at Gone to the Dogs. Thank you, Mountain Mail. It was fun to see my name and face in the paper.
