Abbey Pencil Drawing Silky Terrier Graphite Pet Portrait Dog Art

"Abbey"


Pencil on paper, 14.5" x 10.5".

This graphite portrait of a Silky Terrier is one of my favorites. Her face is bathed in sunlight as those dark eyes are peering through the long, silver hair of her forhead. Abbey was often seen sitting this way in her favorite chair, a Bentwood rocker, and looking out of the window. This drawing was included in 2004 in the annual competition, Art Show at the Dog Show, in Wichita, Kansas.

I've been busy working on a commissioned cow painting and looking forward to finishing it and showing my client the result. I will also be putting the finishing touches on a portrait painting done from a live model that I plan to show here on my blog. There has been a lot of quality painting time for me lately!
If you'd like to commission a painting please contact me.

Thanks for stopping by! Visit my gallery.
