Today was quite a productive day for me.  It is the first time I’ve really painted in mine and Eric’s new house.  Admittedly, my studio space leaves a lot to be desired at the moment, but it is functional and I am grateful for that.

But enough about my studio.  Here is the work I got done today:

I chose a solid background so that the attention is on Seamus.  I still have a little work to do on details and proportions so that it looks more like him.  For example, his nose is too wide in the painting.  Also, the colors of the collar and background can easily be changed if Sue prefers a different look.  I may not get a chance to work on this painting again until Friday, so I’m glad that I got a lot done today.

Ahhh, it feels good to be back!
