I just completed this watercolor portrait of Henry, a sweet and gentle Scottish Deerhound. I met Angela at a barn where I used to ride in NC, and she has owned Deerhounds for years. The deerhound was called "the most perfect creature" by Sir Walter Scott and I believe it is true. I have always been partial to hounds as a Ridgeback owner, but when you meet a Deerhound you feel something special. Henry loves to sleep on his favorite couch and I was able to capture that moment in my painting.
Angela loved it, she said..."Fantastic, that is exactly the face I see in my mind when I think of Henry. You really grasped the essential Henry."

I did have a new client visit me who has commissioned a painting, and a few others inquired about portraits. I think most people were there at the mall for the "Back to School" event and not really looking at art. Such is the life of an artist! You just never know, but you have to get yourself out there.
