Happy New Year everyone! (although I think I'm saying this to thin air as I don't think I have any followers yet!!) I am resolved this year to work on my painting as hard as I can and spend as much time doing it as possible. I'm starting the new year with a new project - which is to paint these two fellows for some friends of mine. Mitch, the springer spaniel on the left, is sadly not with us any more and I have some old photos of him which I am trying to combine with recent photos of Dexter, on the right. It could be a bit of a challenge!
