"IZZY" 85/101 OF 101 PET PORTRAITS IN 101 DAYS © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

SOLD as a gift to her pet mom
Thanks Ron!
Izzy is pet kid to my friend Ron Hanson's mother.  Izzy is a Portuguese Pandango Yorkie Mix. WHEW...I'm excited to have gotten to paint one!  Izzy is a present to Ron's mother.  I enjoyed the dark pinks and purples in the background for Izzy as it makes for great contrast to her fun wiry off white hair.  Izzy is reported to have black eyes...Black eyes are always a bit of a challenge so they don't look like a black hole!...Thanks to Ron for sharing this funny sweet little pup!

This project has been a great learning experience for me as an artist.  When we take on a project that requires work every day in a similar way it is a great way to make decisions on how we would paint a certain subject.  I've had the opportunity to make decisions on how to paint all sorts of hair, and what kinds of colors work to gain a certain effect.  It's what an artist usually knows already, but I can't stress enough just how valuable the art of PRACTICE is!

Izzy is a sweetie in her display options!  The Floater Frames can be purchased through pictureframes.com.  The easel shown here was purchased at Hobby Lobby.

Easel again! He's so cute and looks like a mix of Chihuahua and terrier. Not heard of the Portuguese Pandango before!
