Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog

I've been telling my mom she should do a painting of the dog, mostly because I really wanted one, but also in part because I know it's annoying to tell an artist what she should paint. I'm kind of fresh that way.

But look -- she did it. And it's a sweet little painting, too. I'm going to hang it right in my front hallway so you see it as soon as you walk in the door.

In these pictures, the painting isn't finished yet. She's checking the dog's markings and deciding where to position the dog's legs. I'll post another picture when it's done.
