ABBY THE HUSKY
Painting at Bella Home Furnishings
I love to paint at Bella Home Furnishings, an amazing interior design/home store here in Prescott. Each Winter and Spring they host an open house and invite me to set up my easel and paint. I usually get several commissions whenever I do this, because people in Prescott love their dogs and love to see them rendered in colorful oil paintings. This is a portrait of Abby, a Samoyed Husky. I painted her from a picture her owner texted to me while I was chatting with the shoppers and soaking up the holiday ambiance of the store. I got a lot of great feedback from people who saw this painting evolve as they shopped.
