    Here's a very nearly finished portrait of a lovely rescue chap called Chippie. Chippie's owner, Suzy, bid and won for the portrait as a prize in a charity auction, to help raise funds for another rescue Staffy called Patchy, you can see his story here.

    And this is Chippie's portrait, on the verge of finished, just a bit of tidying up, and my signature to add....

    i am envious. I have always wanted to be able to do something arty, especially portraits and animals. Th only thing I can seem to do is sewing type things.

    Thanks for the comments, it's been a lovely portrait to work on, if a little slow going as I wanted to get it bang on right! Suzy paid more than I actually charge for an A3 detailed pastel (all for a good cause), so it had to be just right.

    Staffy's are so maligned, it's such a shame, they are lovely, lovely dogs. My brother has a rescue on at the moment, she is such a soft, daft thing, absolutely adorable!
