Cloud the Wonder Dog

8" x 10"
oil on panel

My new friend (and wonderful painter) Kathleen Coy and I decided for Christmas to exchange portraits. I painted her dog Cloud (The Wonder Dog) and she painted my Chumley. It was quite fun and challenging - It's not often that I do a portrait for a fellow painter and I felt more less confident that usual, but was able to forge ahead and complete a piece I am very happy with.

When I feel insecure and question my abilities, I say to myself "Buck-up and paint like you know what you're doing!" 
It always works. 

You can see Kathleen's awesome work here:
