THE PORTRAIT IN PRINT:
I took a few photos of Trixie, a friend's GSP a few years back and really liked the composition so knew I would turn it into a portrait at some point. That moment came when I needed a few new pieces of art to include in a Colored Pencil Magazine Article that I was asked to be their featured artist in July 2015. Here is a copy of the gallery page.
