Playing Hooky

OK, I admit it. I am on vacation this week at the beach with my family and I am indulging in laziness.  I have painted several mornings and taken great pictures to paint from when I get back home but my usual dedication to painting is just not there.  This portrait is of my sister-in-law's dog-child, Finn.  I painted it last year and forgot to ever photograph it. Because we are staying at her place at the beach, the perfect opportunity to photograph and post it presented itself!  Animals are one of my favorite things to paint.  I love to try to capture the personality in addition to the likeness.
Now that my work here is done, think I'll play hooky and head to the beach......
