My friend Missy

Acrylic on paper.

This is Missy, my friend the Bulldog puppy. She belongs to Orla, a  brilliant potter who has a studio next to mine. After a shaky start, Missy and I have become great friends , as you can see, she allowd me to paint her portrait, without a hint of embarassment. Maybe I have found another string to my bow….Pet Portraits.
