Whisky & Cheney

This past week I've been working on this commission (for my good friend Michelle) that's  been taken up most of my time.  I love these two dogs!  They are absolutely beautiful!

Anyway.....that being said, my daily paintings have come to a screeching halt! The good news is I'm getting ready to pick up where I left off within the next few days!  So please be sure to check back!

Until then....thanks for looking!
