Bailey looks fabulous Dors - I find the wire-haired dog a real challenge but you have achieved the texture of the coat perfectly. I bet the client was thrilled to bits!!!

Bailey really came out nice. Great job.
Thanks for the blog comment on my site. Searching out wildlife can have its downs. Guided a couple from Baltimore Md. yesterday morning at first light. 4-wheel up the mountain to show them Bighorn Sheep. A 50% chance. It is never foggy in this area. By top of the mountain it was very FOGGY. It is hard and embarrasding for a guide to explain to folks what they cannot see. Ahhh! LOL

Dors said...

Thank you Gary for your comment.

What a disappointment with the mountain view in the fog. I guess that's nature. we can never control the weather.

Krista Hasson said...

Wow you never cease to amaze me, this is brilliant. I love the expression

Dors said...

Thank you Krista for such a lovely comment. Taking a break right now as we are starting to pack ready to move into our new home.
It's getting close now.
I may do some fun drawing with any free time I get.
