This is a tiny little 3" x 3" that I did as a birthday greeting for a friend at work. Our birthdays are one day apart and as 'birthday buddies' we try to do something a little special for each other. Birthdays are a good time to take stock, think about how you have spent the past year and what you would like to accomplish in the next. After a few Christmas gift dog portraits on the schedule, I want to go big. I bought a supply of large canvas, ordered new paint and am ready to begin!
