Animal Wednesday: Portrait of a Queen

I'm not sure I've ever posted this before. This is a portrait of my dog, Emma.
I love painting on heavy patterned paper and then detailing it with colored pencils.
Is she not the cutest thing? If only she behaved better.
We're always working on that ;)

Happy Animal Wednesday!
I'm on my way upstairs to have a little siesta with her.


  1. she sure looks very sweet. hope you both had a peaceful siesta

  2. OMG....she IS a Queen!!!! She is every inch - a Queen! And in a few months, I will meet her highness!!!

    BEAUTIFUL PICTURE of a MONARCH - as she surely co-reigns (with Princess Bliss) over the Gaylord Kingdom!
