Sketching, drawing, and painting

My two little subjects.......Otis and Riley. I thought it would be fun to make a collage of some of the art work I've done of them, and frame it. Here are the ones I've finished.

Inseparable, mischevious, funny, happy, loveable little brothers.

I love the shape of their little bodies and I like the black and white. Which gives me an idea........maybe some note cards with little doxies.

Gosh, this is so cute.;) I love the one of them lying on the chair, it is a very captivating painting.
How fun that they are brothers! They are so adorable, I am not surprised you get inspired to sketch and paint them constantly.;)

Donna - Otis & Riley are so adorable. We used to have mini-dachshunds. Our first one, Mustard (she preferred Muppy) was a wire-hair, she was with us 5 and 1/2 years.
Our second was Jill, she was a smooth and was ours for 15 and 1/2 years.
They are clowns aren't they. I love your pictures of them.

I too just LOVE the black and whites, too!! Actually - they are all so darling and really seem to capture their doggy love of each other. Too cute!

Best wishes for a happy, healthy & prosperous New Year, Donna!

They are the cutest. Love the little silhouette. Is that a green VW Beetle? Mine's red. Mimi

Fabulous job Donna. My favorites are the silhouettes probably. I guess, as you know, I'm going through a black and white faze. : ) Just beautiful!!!!
