Here are two photos of my friends dogs, Vegas and Tipsy. She wanted them in the same painting together. I had to use two different photos, one taken inside and one outside to achieve this. Dogs are just like kids, they just would not sit still for their photo.
Last summer we visited the mission at San Juan Capistrano. I remember visited this mission as a child and although it looked much different then I remembered the feelings and peacefulness of the mission still exists.
I am just playing around with the background at this point. Not sure if I like the light color or not, also have a few tweaks I need to do on the wheels.....I am going to let this set for a few days and then post the finished piece.
I took this photo at a local antique shop, Bubbee's Goodz. They have quite the selection of items for me to paint...think I will be busy with them for a long time. I am going to show this as a work in progress
