Francesca was a recent commission from a group of school board colleagues to their co-worker as a retirement gift.  I was excited when I was commissioned to paint this sweet girl.  It's not often that I get to paint snow, so it was a treat.  This led to another commission with snow and a black dog, which I'll be starting on soon.  It'll be a Christmas gift so I won't be able to show it until later.

Painting her little Burberry dog coat was also fun.  Francesca is really styling in that coat!

Hope you enjoyed this one.  You might also enjoy this portrait here:
