This is the photo of Bailey who is a mixed breed dog.  I took this photo on my living room floor.  Bailey is about 14 years old and is not much of a model in front of the camera, figure that by his averted eyes.  I took several photos and put them all at the shelf of my easel.  I did two paintings, one much simpler.  This painting really flowed and was completed in about 3-4 hours.  What really helped was that Bailey kept me company during the process and it was easy to channel his likeness.  It is acrylic on a 10×10 gallery wrapped canvas.   The painting was donated to First Coast No More homeless pets as a fundraiser.  During the event, it did receive some bids.  Nice!  All proceeds went to a no-kill program.  Bailey would approve.
