You may recall that in July I wrote about my family’s holiday tradition of painting. I usually make my painting around New Year’s Eve, but because BTH and I had only a week to spend at Mom & Dad’s house this year, I made it on Boxing Day.
This is a portrait of my parents’ dog wearing a silly seasonal hat that my Dad gave to my Mom. She’s a husky/labrador retriever/german shepherd/goodness knows what else mutt that we got about eight years ago when some of our friends had puppies, and she’s sweet-tempered and generally well-behaved. I’m not much of a dog person, but I think she’s pretty much the best dog ever.
I also started this digital painting of a Christmas Elf on Christmas Eve. After getting the flat colors laid in, I decided that I should make a traditional media painting instead of spending my time finishing this picture.
