I just finished a commission for an old cowboy.  Super nice man who spent his whole life running cattle, training horses and mules. My first impression was that he would have a “cowboy” dog.  You know, maybe a black lab, maybe a border collie, but something loud and big. Wow!!! How wrong I was.  Out came the star of the show, wearing her jewel-studded collar.  Holly was this sweet old beagle who loved to have her ears rubbed. I guess that showed me not to judge someone by their lifestyle.

Here’s a close up of the drawing around her eyes and nose. The original has so much detail, but it never comes through in any of the pictures…
