I just love these beautiful Russian Wolfhounds or Borzoi. They are so elegant and regal. My grandson and I met one at the dog show. The Borzoi have such a sweet personality. This is Jasha who belongs to a new Facebook friend Zoi, a woman who shares my interest in dogs and art.
This was a chance to work from a live model. Pupicek was not sure what I was up to and kept a watchful eye on me while I painted. He is a 15 year old dog and very good at maintaining the pose.
This past summer I was fortunate to attend a workshop with Colley Whisson at the Landgrove Inn in Landgrove, VT. Colley is an Australian artist
